from yesterday, for tomorrow:

if waiting asked me what i should do
i would tell it to run or divide it in two
one half for the weeping who search for a god
the other for seeking who look for a cause

but for me and the rest
waiting won’t do
with no cause in my chest
and no gods in the blue

act now we must
or privy to no plot
the steps we take forward not receiving a thought

maybe we’ll find ourselves
found
by a one or a thing
or maybe
we’ll walk a board
right into the sea.

so i ask:
if impatience persists
learn how to swim,
and find an island

if you won’t wait, learn how to walk
and come onto rock
if you won’t speak, learn at least how to talk
and take claim of your spot

play the charade,
and don’t ever stop.

-nv
