Waiting Upon Waiting - Poem by Rick Elpers

Impatient hopeful tired
The limbs of the tree of life
Weigh heavy upon my soul
Often breaking off
Crushing the fences I build
To fend off the world
Only to expose the rawness
Guarded so carefully
Now with open wounds
Shall I leave these things given
Utilized spent exhausted
And appreciated
Off and on to the next
Circumstance given
To devour as food
Hoping for growth.
