Emmanuel Arunee Mwanza


Patiently Waiting


Patiently waiting
Cautiously watching

Continuously alert and alive
Sitting there doing nothing but expecting

Giving the best tries and then living in hope
Trusting every action and well calculated thought

Like football, passing thoughts from one side of the brain to the other
So patient and yet under constant fighting
The heart wrestling with the brain

The only prayer is that it shouldn’t be a deadlock
As I wait for my time of success
To be the best I can,
Eyes everywhere trying to cease every opportunity peeping
