Standing By

Irene Marie Cortez

It feels like every single moment of the day is a moment spent for waiting.

Tick tock. Tick tock. Tick tock. I could hear the very next second commence like I’ve never heard it before; and then it passes me by as if I never existed. There are times when I find myself growing impatient; and exhausted; it feels like I am going to agonizingly count the tick tocks and just let the days go by for the rest of my life. But so much for the whining.

There is a good amount of sunshine in the mornings; and in the afternoons all through the night, either it drizzles or the sky sends a heavy downpour; it seems like the sun and the rain finally learned to compromise and are doing their fair share in nourishing the earth; and in making each day a little more interesting.

I might as well just live in the moment…
