Waiting, Watching

waiting, watching

Why?

must tomorrow always be the day

when the earth's not bare

can't the here and now give birth to bloom?



waiting, watching

Why?

do we sit listening to voices

Tell us we're to young

Tell us one is insignificant



waiting, watching

Why?

do corrupt bones blabber on

"Act like this "

"Think like that"



waiting, watching

Why?

are they like sheep

Always follow

Never think



waiting, watching

Standing By

"one day," we say

while the earth stays dry

and we wonder

Why?
