The waiting room
Have you ever read the book Oh the places you'll go... It's a great book.
"The Waiting Place.... for people just waiting.
Waiting for the train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or a No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.
Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Unkle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting...."
I there, just waiting. Waiting for the next treatment, waiting for parents to die, waiting for my back to get better or worse, waiting for summer.....
