As I wait for the moment
Each one takes a leap forward
There is stillness in the air
It is like never before, as always.
My head is running at a speed of 100 questions a minute
While my heart just skipoped a beat
When will the calm winds blow through the soul?
When will the jitters blow away the restlessness?
Keeping myself occupied with thoughts
Will I go blank when the moment arrives?
One by one I wash them away
By putting them down on paper as I wait
Now drenched in confusion
I look around at faces all pale
All lips talk the same with impatience like red lipstick they stay
Last few breaths till the moment arrives
Clasping my hands I say it’s going to be alright.
