Life At A Crawl

Looking at the roses

Lavender and wilting

Make me wonder

At the fleeting crawl of life

 

Trying to move ahead

But for other people’s problems

I’m stuck in first gear

And no way to go forward

 

It bothers me sometimes

How I must wait and wait

For somebody to set things

My patience is shedding

 

I don’t have a way to turn

I sit in the sudden stillness

Waiting for a gleam of hope

To guide me out of the shadows
