Waiting - Poem by Ridhi Malhotra

In our lives we’re always waiting for something
Weather it be to enjoy a ride on a swing
Weather it be to take part and sing
At first, I waited to enter the world
When I was warm, wet and curled
Then I waited to learn to talk
When I did, I couldn’t wait to walk
After a while walking seemed so normal
Couldn’t wait to go to the high school formal
At my engagement I called all my friends
We got together, told stories and made amends
I couldn’t wait to get home when I had my first child
It happened to be very naughty and wild
It grew up enough to go to primary school
Then I had to wait for it to come out of the pool
The topic of marriage arose
And my child eventually proposed
The twins got mischievous and bold
As I got weak and very old
Then, one day I started waiting for my time to be up
So I could join my ancestors in drinking from a golden cup
When I reached they smiled ‘finally, you’re here’ they stated
Yes, they also had waited…
