While Waiting

The waiting was always fine for me

Always manageable

Always thinking it’s all just routine.

But it got me thinking,

“What if one of these days it wouldn’t be routine?

What if all this waiting will cease?”

I wondered this as I sat there

Waiting, like I often do

I often accompany my mom on her check ups. It’s all routine now as it’s been almost 13 years since she was diagnosed. It just got me thinking earlier though that there may come a time when the results would lead to bad news and I wondered what and how I’d react.

Slaves of Time

Living life at the sound of the alarm clock

Waiting for it to go

I don’t think that’s how it’s supposed to be

But then I find myself asking

Until when?

Until when do we have to be slaves of time?
