So I Wait

Its baffling what a feeling of hopelessness can drive a man to do. If you ever found yourself dead lost in the middle of an obscure jungle, you won’t naturally sit under a tree, be calm, and think about where best to start your fire. You will press forward, pummel forcefully through leaves and branches. Your heart will pound desperately as you surge and lunge for familiarity. You will want to be found, you will expect to find direction. In those frantic moments, the thought of remaining calm and patient rarely dawns. Yet, ironically so, it is usually in those moments of solitude and waiting that we eventually figure our way. I suppose the only question which remains is, how long these moments take…
So I wait.

Whilst expectations and fabrications correlate
To implicate
The very forces that lifted me,
Beyond the reach of belittling fate.

But there lay a path straight
To amicable acceptance
Regardless of my state.
And though time, His and ours, nay a replicate
Never will He be late.

So I wait.


  1. Nice the contrast between the caption and your so well written poetry!

    The caption seems to be extracted from the mind of a Westerner, empty of meditation, full of action.

    Your poetry takes apart and align each one of the seconds we must use to connect "our" time with "Time", following the Eastern mind almost to the core!

    Undoubtedly, you are a deep thinker too, AfterTim, since there is a heavy meaning in your weighing the impossibility of reality to be compared to Eternity and at the same time rest assured the latter would not be late... So you wait!

    Just one word: Wonderful!

  2. Always humbled by your comments, Tony. Truly undeserved I must say! But thank you nevertheless.

    Waiting, to me, is a tragic yet courageous act, especially when it involves crucial aspects of our lives, which makes who or what we wait upon so vital.

  3. That excitement, something that lies in the middle of hope and despair. How well you have articulated that! I love this one.

  4. That excitement of something that lies in the middle of hope and despair; how well you have articulated it! Very well done.
