Just Create – Poem For Those Who Wait

Festooning balloons of pride and hate

You tell me lies; you don’t create

The longer you just sit and wait

The more abused I feel and, “great”

Your own excuse I long to escape

Your feelings worse than I can take

And still you sit and wait too late

Drowning desires with not a sate

I long to run and get away

But money hides and doesn’t take

I sit right here too long to wait

And still you sleep in pain; create

A better life is still in wake

But you don’t see the world of late

A tv screen and news at eight

The world you see is filtered through so many ways
