Wait

Wait

Wait…..

A word I’ve come to hate

They’ve all gone, very far

Some are close to getting “it”

Others are not, but they are all far ahead of me.

Yet you ask me to wait!

You keep holding me back here

I know I have what it takes

I know the costs and the stakes

I can do more than their expectations

I know I can surpass their peaks.
Why do you keep holding me back?

Why won’t you let the spotlight shine on me?

Why won’t you let me go out and get a “name”?

Do you hate me so much that you don’t want to see me celebrated?

What is it about me that you have refused me to be revealed?

You keep whispering, in my ears, “Wait, wait”.

I’m getting tired of waiting …..

His reply

“And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.

Your day of shewing is yet to come

I love you too much to put you out there prematurely.

You despise this desert experience, but you’re ignorant of the fact that it’s building you..

Wait, my child or you’ll rise  like smoke only to disappear without a trace. 

Wait princess, lest you be like them, here today and gone tomorrow.

Wait for the appointed time

Wait for your time of “shewing”

They may have gone ahead of you but they are not ahead of you

Because when I’m ready to reveal to the world what I’ve been working on, in you, I accelerate you. 

Have you not heard?  ‘They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they  shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not  be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.’

So wait, for in no time your wings will be ready to soar.”

YOUR EYES

Your eyes

The first thing I noticed after your height
They were fascinating. 

Special

Different

∂.

Your eyes, they revealed so much

Promises for the future. Castles we’d build together.

They communicated with mine quite often.

Revealed your vulnerability

They told me you had a soft part.

Deep down within your strong physical structure is a sweet baby,  who loves totally

They told me when you were happy and when you were not.

They told me when you were excited and when I should be worried.

Dear bestie, your eyes have been snitching on you.

They’ve gotten so close to mine.

I wrote this for you, to let you know you have beautiful eyes that became my friends long before you got close to me ♥

Dedicated to my best friend

Happy birthday in advance ♥

I love you.
