what has shattered your illusion of control

Waiting is our destiny as creatures
who cannot by themselves

bring about what they hope for.
We wait in the darkness for

a flame we cannot light,
we wait in fear for a happy ending

we cannot write.

We wait for a not yet

that feels like a not ever.

Waiting is the hardest work of hope.
(Lew Smedes)
