We are waiting

For the bell to toll
As we sit listlessly staring

We are waiting

For the handouts we think we deserve
Feet tapping impatiently

We are waiting

For acceptance, for rejection
For any response at all

We are waiting

For them to welcome us openly –
We can make ourselves a home here, we promise

We are waiting

For others who feel and think as we do
To whisk us away from this lonely train to nowhere

We are waiting

For more than we have now
For signs to tell us that it’ll get better

We are waiting

For variation from this bland and basic routine
That lulls our dreams to sleep

We are waiting

For what we yearn for endlessly
For what we wish will come true

We are waiting

For ourselves to give up
For ourselves to move on
For ourselves to know better

We are waiting
