We are all waiting for something.

Some things that need a lot of waiting
…are probably worth the wait.

And other things, you just don’t have a choice
so you decide that they are worth it anyway.

I guess all of us need something to look forward to
With a half-chance that they will arrive someday…sometime.

  1. and sometimes we wait even knowing they are not going to come, demons of false hope win the war over demons of reality!

  2. A time shall come, and it sure shall,
    We won’t wait, like another bait,
    A time to march ahead, and make our way,
    Pave the path to another day,
    A time shall come, and it sure shall.

    Until then, I guess, we shall just sit and wait. πŸ˜•

  3. He had to be there by 6 in the morning,but he had to smoke before he came. Or he just didn’t care. Or his cycle had a puncture. Or he had an ailing relative. Or the thousand others that need to be wherever didn’t. It’s not why we wait, but that we have to.

  4. Waiting is great, but how much time is time enough? When you know that you have taken your time, is there any reason why you should wait?
    Maybe patience and hope are not such great virtues after all. Sometimes, it is hope itself that does us in…

  5. Maybe I’m in a prosaic mood today, but if you’re writing about waiting for things in life and put up a shot like that, it merely suggests you feel deeply about local trains.

    I’m waiting, too, for the great I to get back to her usual self.

    @ Rakhi: Well-put.

    @ Brenda: Viva the impatient!

    @ Anon Y.Mouse: Look at the picture carefully..there’s a train approaching. The post was built around the photograph. And yeah, I guess I do feel deeply about the local trains, I’m that much of a girl-geek. And err…what great self?

  7. Well.. I guess thats what life is all about.. waiting..
    Figuring out what to wait to for, and what is worth it… making mistakes in it and rectifying them, sometimes realizing sadly what all we missed in that wait… all these… I guess these are what make us what we are….

  8. Its like waiting for a new blog post… its worth the wait anyway… πŸ˜›

    we spent a large part of our life waiting for something… waiting for the school bus… waiting for that crucial result… waiting for the perfect someone.. waiting for the right time… The best part of our lives are spent between anticipation and achievement.. isn’t it.. ❗

    Enjoy and take care..
