the waiting


there’s a song
in me
that’s ready to sing

there’s a gift
that’s hiding

not meant for


the right timing

i know
it’s there
i feel
it’s beat

getting stronger

much longer
will it be

before i

    Hi, nancy. I think your song sings already. maybe it marches to the beat of a different drum? beautiful because of that strange rhythm.
