Get In Line - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Get In Line
Date: December 31,2013

I cannot linger by the gate
If only just to stand and wait
If nothing’s real, to touch, to feel
I am not made of iron or steel
I cannot be, if just to plea
With you and I, there is no “we”
I cannot stand with outstretched hand
Nor pretend to understand
I cannot stay, to live as prey
I cannot give my soul away
You only pry, to watch me cry
You sting my heart, then flutter by
If you can’t see, the fire in me
Then clearly, it’s not meant to be

I will not linger by the gate
If only just to stand and wait…
