The Waiting Game

Waiting for the rain to go or the sun to come, or the clouds to go or the car to come, or the fear to go or the phone to ring, or the heart to know or waiting around for your love to grow or waiting for his fear to go. Everyone is just waiting. Waiting for the endless night or waiting for the endless fight or waiting around for your delight or waiting, perhaps, for my heartbreak or a cry of help, or your tears for my sake or a chain of thorns, or a chain of rants or a ring of flames, or one more chance. Everyone is just waiting.
Based on the book: Oh, the Places You'll Go! Dr Seuss For the competition Dr. Seuss theme and form by Joann Grisetti
