Wait and Waiting

Wait for you forever
All of us may have
In earnest or in deceit
Told it to someone somewhere

Waiting is a game people play
Ask anyone who has
Interviewed for a job
Time seems to run very slow
Indeed every minute like an hour
No answer comes for repeated prayers
Good news, great, bad news is a blow

Wait with bated breath for news from the front
All of a sudden a knock on the door
Instantaneously world changes forever
There will always be an empty space in that heart of yours

Waiting for your luck to change
Almighty must be having a big laugh
Is not it known to all
Time and tide waits for none
In God we trust,good, but
Now is the time to get off your butt
Go and work for what you deserve

Wait is almost over
As November 8 is drawing near
It’s the solemn duty of
The citizens of a democracy
Wake up and get ready
Ask your fellow citizens
In your neighborhood
Trump or Hillary
It is your choice
Now is not the time to procrastinate
Go and cast your VOTE

Write anything Wednesday Oct-12-2016

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. Nicely done–I’ve written only a few acrostic poems and find them most difficult. You do one every week! I was tickled by your prior post about waiting in regard to phone calls–back when there were no cells, spotty connections, pay phones, waiting until a certain hour to get a better rate, etc. I was working on a piece about the role the telephone has played in my life and was worried that my memories would sound really dated, and that the younger generation(s) would have NO IDEA what I’m talking about 🙂

    1. I did not know that these are called “acrostic” poems when I started writing these poems. It was pointed out to me by one of my kind readers. These are part of my writing that I do every Wednesday starting with a word the first letter of which is “W”. Completed 41 weeks and another 11 weeks to go to complete my year long journey with “W”.

      1. Wow that’s great!
        I am inspired to write one in this style now 😀
        But I am sure yours is a fantastic one and I will be waiting for your review when I post one such poem 🙂
