Poetry: Time

An older one again.

~*~*~
Time

I hold my breath
and wonder
how much longer I will wait
will I die in this place
or will I find an escape
The places I’ve been to
Imprint memories on my soul
each moment I keep waiting
Is another day unbold

I keep holding on
Waiting for that breath to come
To be free of myself
And what keeps me holding on
We all live life waiting
For one moment to shine
But I just can’t find the time

Each night I think back
Wonder what I’m doing with my life
Will I wait one more day
Will I take a chance and die
I’ve seen things that scare me
And I fear the things unknown
But I can’t help wishing
For another day to be bold

I keep holding on
Waiting for my chance to come
to be free of myself
And what keeps me holding on
We all live life waiting
For one moment to shine
But I just can’t find the time
