56. Are we there yet?

This was one of those things that was just such an enjoyable fun thing to be doing from start to finish. Such fun that I have no recollection how it started. I only remember the finishing of it and the inner chuckle of childish satisfaction. It now just resides upon its page tittering mischievously.

56. Are we there yet?

Before you know it you’ve got old enough,
To have learned how to wait,
For those things you really can’t wait for,
But you’ll remember when you were younger,

That waiting was all but impossible,
And you didn’t really wait at all,
Your whole existence was just an exercise,
In trying hard not to explode,

For the tedium about drove you mad,
As time it seemed to have stalled,
And there’d be trouble if you ruined the wallpaper,
So you couldn’t give in to climbing the walls,

Outtakes.

56. Patience is a pain in the arse.

About Jim Laing

The Buddha said there were four kinds of people. Those who run from dark to dark, those who run from light to dark, those who run from dark to light and those who run from light to light. From a life going from dark to dark to having a few years running from dark to light, with scuffed hands and knees from sometimes falling, I may be getting the hang of it now. How it began is not now how it is, I need a quiet space, After the noise of the day, So I take sanctuary in the creativity, And my soul feeds, On sometimes dark, Sometimes light fantasy, And I dare like many to work, But stay up off my knees, To dream, perchance to suffer, But always still to dream. Here are things mostly lyrical and poetic, with nonsense sometimes, reviews and personal musings. The coffees hot and always black. The words not necessarily so.
