Waiting (Friday’s Free for All)

For hopes that hung on a chicken bones

For hearts that lived in chains

For pods of green that died unknown

While waiting for the rain

For dreams left bare on empty prayer

For souls that wished in vain

For tears unshared in mute despair

While waiting for a change

For you and I and all mankind

For worlds where peace was slain

For faith and mind no man can bind

We wait and wait again.

Remember, it’s National Poetry Month. Get out there & enjoy the journey.
