Being Still




Being on the sidelines

of the field of life

 She sat on the bench in the

Hardest game to be played

The Waiting Game.

Waiting to be picked

Waiting to play

Waiting to take part in all the

Experiences life had to offer.

Days turned to months


Months transpired into years.


She was still on that bench watching the world tick on

Pass her up.

Pass her by.

She thought about doing things her way.

Make her own choices.

Ignore the Coach’s orders


Follow her own plan.

But the captain told her the coach knew best.

He knew things she didn’t know

Things she couldn’t see.

So, she remained in her seat

And that’s when she realized

Of all the virtues to acquire

Patience was the hardest of them all.
