Just Don’t Keep Me Waiting

Treat me like a patient

Just don’t keep me waiting

I know I’ve got some patience

But this is an emergency

And it needs urgent attention

But you can’t know what I want

If you don’t know who I am

Like, how do you know where I’m going

If you don’t know what’s driving me

My life is a journey

The destination, time unfolding

I know the Way am following

The speed the pain is slowing

You can follow me on

While I try to figure things out

Or you can wait and observe

Till it’s all figured out

But just don’t keep me waiting

For I’m a patient

And time is of essence.

I Have A Life To Live

What is important to you?
Or what should you care about?
Is it about what you feel?
Or what we feel about you?

I pick up my pen to write
The battle is not about 
What to write about
But rather what I am 
Expected to write about.

I am stuck between these 
Contrasting worlds of mine
To write my heart 
Which you do not want to hear
Or to write what you want
Which I may not really care about.

Why am I evening thinking
About what you want?
I have a life to live
If you want someone
Who will do exactly what you want
Why not get a clone of you?
You have enough resources, why not make one?

I have a life to live
A saviour to please
Poems to write
And records to break
My mind to speak
And a mission to fulfill
And after all said and done
I have my life to account.
