no wait

the worst is the waiting
but what is it you’re waiting for?
for the seas to part…
for the gate to open…
for the heralds to tell you what to do?
you already know what to do
you’re doing it
you’ve been doing it
the race has started
and everyone knows
the track goes around in circles
you say the worst is the waiting
not when you’re just hoping for
or some false sense of certification…
the worst part is the feeling
that you needed it in the first…
