(Art by Colleen Barry)
I’ve done everything
Prayers sent out to the divine unseen
Seeds sown waiting for just that drop of rain
Cast lots, played my cards right with hardwork and wishful thinking
This force that has no name
Causing our bliss to pause abruptly
Timer set by the unknown for normalcy to be rebirth at will
Days and days past yet no dew
Frustration clinging ever so tightly
Mocking efforts and plans
Is this my karma?
For sins offered to life as offering
Do I deserve this wait?
It’s like my feet is stuck in ice
Ice like soldiers slowly marching towards my heart
Heart failing but still faintly beating
Patience running out, I might go back
To the days where the consequence didn’t matter
Where I chose me and was blind
Where I accepted my fate
And knew I wasn’t in control, never will be
And just lived as it came
Is this the better way?
Conscience pleading no
I just want to be happy!!!
