Once upon a fate
Our balanced hearts
Hanging on their decision
Snatching your attention
Merits lined for their bare opinion
Shaking your emotional ownership
But we waited.

I trippled over
But didn’t fall
Halted their common thought,
The load was too large
And the weight too much
It was ours

Those forces that came
Too much for me
We could
All the while
Wanted to look back
I did not, thought us
Hoped for tomorrow
It was ours.

You listened to them
So much you feared us
Too much you mind them
So much, and waited,
And waited still,
And hoped,
For He promised…
It would be ours.
