Waiting

Written by: Bridget Prewitt

Should I wait
for flowers to bloom
for grass to grow
for clouds to appear 
for snow to snow
for black to turn white
for white to turn black
for me to move forward
for you to move back

Should I wait 
for the clock to tick
the timer to wring
for a peasant to rise
to turn to a king 
for a home to be built
for a home to be knocked down
for a town grow to a city
and a village grow to a town?

You may think there's a message
a significant plot
But I am just waiting for hot to get hot
for cold to get cold
for young to get younger 
and old to get old
I'm just waiting
and waiting
I wait
for waiting
to wait
for flowers to bloom
for grass to grow
for clouds to appear 
for snow to snow
for black to turn white
for white to turn black
for me to move forward
for you to move back

Can I just sit here and wait and wait
And If I could wait more
that would be great
