To live is to wait-
For this to happen,
That to end,
To have an answer
One way or the other,
As one bout of waiting ends,
Another starts,
We get what we want
Only to immediately begin fixating
On the next thing-
The next goal,
The next milestone,
And so the cycle continues,
Until eventually there is nothing left to wait for,
Or there is,
But we are not there to see it.
