The Waiting Place.

...for people just waiting.

waiting for a 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 uncle 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.

and everyone always says it's best never to wait around for things. you shouldn't miss out on what's happening right now just cause you're waiting for something better to come along. you could wait for something your entire life and suddenly realize everything you've been waiting for is standing right in front of you. imagine all the time you wasted waiting for something that was already there, staring you straight in the eyes. and then they always tell you life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain. but what if you knew for sure that waiting is really what you want to do? would you really be missing out on anything? because if you knew for a fact that all the waiting would be worth it in the end, wouldn't you wait? if it's something you've got to do, then you've got to do it. holding on is all you can do and hopefully no one will let you go. cause there's no sign of that happening on my part anytime soon.
