A lifetime of waiting - a photo by T Newfields
A lifetime of waiting.
What's it all for?
A wedding?
A funeral?
Another birth?
Or chance to shop more?
How many people
are stuck in roles
never wanted?
How many have the courage
to change their scripts
& become less haunted?
Linda:   Most of what we call 'human life' is simply waiting for death.
Ron:   (shaking his head) Oh spare me! I've heard enough such metaphysical nonsense!
Linda:   (after a brief silence) What some call 'nonsense' others call 'fact.'
Lis:   I wanna smell flowers & celebrate life while it lasts.
Lex:   Yeah, we should acknowledge death. However, there is no reason to die prematurely.
