Waiting Is Very Smart

Standard

Waiting is very smart
it knows why the phone is not ringing
or the letter is unanswered
why the opportunity has not come
what the other really thinks
And it screams all these things it knows

Waiting is very smart
it knows it’s only in the waiting
it can have its way
turn what really is into whatever feeds fear most
So it now screams all these things it knows

Waiting is very smart
because some call will come
some words be sent
some path be found
some understanding arise

Then fog fades
and a thing visible appears
and it is too late for its waiting then
too late for its screams

After the waiting
then fears fed turn into what really is
often full of enormous hard
but now know is the hand to play

Waiting is very smart
and sometimes sneaky too
For the sometimes it appears (appears) it knew all along
it claims a next time right to scream louder still

Waiting knows a thing visible
no matter how hard
presents a tangible to be confronted
but that waiting presents ungraspable fog

It’s hard to figure out how to deal with waiting
its fog its guesses its darkest supposes
Waiting knows how hard waiting is
and it can wait a long time
it’s smart that way
