Waiting- a poem

Waiting
K.N. Lee

Waiting 
For the right time
Tick tock

Take a moment
Sip some tea
Watch the clock
Waiting
For the moment 
While your brain
Screams out in shame
Tick
Tock...
Crushed souls 
And hearts broken
The words are dangerous
But they need to be spoken
Releasing feelings 
Emptying thine heart
Making room for something new
But unsure of how to start 

Waiting is for weaklings
Smash that clock to bits
There is no time for waiting
Gather your belongings
And your wits

Waiting
Why? 
Aren't you tired...
Of waiting?
Get up
Clutch that courage
With chin held high
Your time is up
And you know why...
