The Wait

I sleep through nights
and wake through the days
life seems alright,
moving at the right pace
But what lies beneath
is the daze…346
The haze,
that clouds the reason
and fails to explain…

Things I want to understand

Thoughts that most often

evade my peace…

Should I, shouldn’t I?

I wonder why and until when..
How long is it before this ends
What must I expect
What must I pray for
Should I garner hope
or accept defeat, after all.
Can things really change
Can mistakes be undone,
words taken back,
misdeeds forgiven?

The questions are endless
and the answer-just silence.
A void that never ceases to exist
but only grows larger.

I am helpless, just like you.
There are certain things we shall never know.
But for the truths that are fated to be revealed
the wait continues, on an endless time wheel.


Author: AfroetryC

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
