Poetry by A. H. Scott, Copyright 2019
What are you waiting for?
For that moment when everything will be just right?
For the moment you’ll be blessed with a kiss goodnight?
Or, when you walk into a room to have someone look at you with a gaze of perfect delight?
Pondering your worth in another person’s life?
What are you looking for?
What do you seek?
Is it something or someone that will tip your dreams to its’ peak?
Maybe all of it
Maybe none of it
When will that day come?
Thinking you can be the one
The one in the mirror that makes you smile
The one who finally sees you and wants you to stick around
The one who realizes strengths within that will endure
The one that knows there’s more to this life for sure
The one obscured behind that internal jawboning of defeat
The one who compares to another in a race which we didn’t compete
The one who has settled in ways both large and small
Wanting to expand horizons, but afraid to shine
Affixed to that humble grind
Sitting back and watching seconds turn to years
And, stunted by fears
Staying in your own lane, you never complain
Hands of time can never unwind
Obsolete in stoking a fire within another
Inside of you there’s a yearning flicker of embracing something beautiful and new
Settling is safe, as is the shore
There’s so much more to life to adore
Maybe, it’s not another which you seek
It’s someone closer than you think
The one is you
Just look in the mirror
You will see it through
You will see it true
