Weight and Wait

              Weight and Wait

When told to wait,  burden added,
Weight of wait, agitates.
Not told yes, not told no,
Indifference and ambivalence in don't know.

Try to control the weight,
Yet crushes, presses, and resists.
Wait builds muscles,
Patience, empathy, humility all grow.

Suffering under wait,
Wanting delivered from weight.
Being human,
In this life all wrestle with wait.
