The Wait


Light In The Darkness by Revd. Dawn Savidge. Please credit for use


Are we nearly there yet?

Childish

Child-like

humanity longs

humanity groans

restless

fidgeting

on donkey saddle

in-car bucket seat

Are we nearly there yet?


Bethlehem does not lie still

Bethlehem lies in ruins

torn apart

ripped apart

imprisoned

by a wall

Bethlehem is not our destination

Are we nearly there yet?


Are we nearly there?


Do we even know

where we are going?


Do we even know

where we are going?


We need a leader

We need a strong leader

We need a duce

Make humanity great again

Make humanity great and glorious again


Expectant

Anticipatory

Wait

The long wait

The long, dark wait

The long, silent wait

Wait

The long wait

The long, dark wait

The long, silent wait


Are we nearly there yet?


Has hope spluttered its first

fragile

breaths?

Is hope screaming?

Is hope greedily suckling?

Nourishing

Replacing nutrients

Depleted

Through the trauma of birth?

Is hope alive?

Is hope alive?

Is hope alive?


I hate, I despise your feasts

I take no delight in your solemn assemblies

I care nothing for your economic growth

And I cannot be found in your pre-Christmas sales
