I Walk

Wait

Wait no more

I can't stay

Can't stand here

And dream

And wait

Wait

Just standing around

My feet planted here

On unholy ground

While people walk by

Silent

Still

No glances

No love

Just cold eyes and faces

A command

To wait

Wait?

For what?

For life to get better

Don't do something?

No

Hush

And wait

You're a child

A child?

Yes

No guilt

Or experience

Just youth

Pure

Raw

So hush

Pray

Stay still

And wait

No

No?

I said it

No!

I'll do

I'll dream

I'll live

And see

But wait?

Never

No

No patience

Cold faces

And commands

No

Be the change

Change you

And him

Us

And them

Her

It

That

Me

Change and see

Life unfolds

To dreams

To you

And me

Don't hush

Or wait

I don't

No

I don't

I breathe

And see

And walk
