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)
