The Stillness Holds Me No More

Why do I wait for things to turn?

Instead, I should grab life by the shoulders,

Look into its eyes, and make it see my future.

No more hand-holding, I am alone.

That is okay.

Alone is okay.

And waiting for others to begin to live

Should not stop my life in still tracks.

I will not wait for me no longer.

I'll never be ready.

That is okay.

Though I must go and the stillness

Holds me no more.
