“Wait For It”

This thing’s filled with uncertainty,

Stretching far into the distance,

Steadily stealing my time from me,

Success requires patience and persistence.

I have a goal, that I aim to complete,

Although I do wonder, what am I doing!?

It’s rewarding, but generally bitter sweet,

A typical experience in the art of queueing.

Most British people have an inherent fascination or obsession with queueing, but I’m certain that it’s more of a global phenomenon, especially in large cities, and if it’s for the latest “in thing”.

I’ve queued for a few hours for things before, but you hear of people camping out for days for concert tickets, high profile games or mobile phones, etc. Some people are even prepared to pay huge sums of money to others, just to hold their place in the queue for them.

I’m intrigued, what’s the longest you’ve ever queued for something? What were you queueing for? …and did your efforts work out for you?

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
