The Waiting Game
Life is like a bus stop –
a waiting game, for sure.
For when you think you’ve got it sussed
It makes you wait some more.
The traffic coming in and out
can get you in a spin,
and you must beware of heartbreak
if you let this traffic in.
For things that look like taxis;
made to pick you up each day,
turn into big red buses
so they crush you on the way.
But if you stand there long enough
And wait with patience and a smile,
Then life can be a journey
That makes waiting seem worthwhile.
