The Waiting Game...

The Waiting Game...

A Poem by Dawn

the waiting game

what a horrible feeling
just waiting
to find out
the answers
to your gruelling tests
and exams
you have just
had done
over a series
of time.

To find out
do you have
some terminal life threating
disease
like cancer

You just
want to know
one way
or the other
At least
that kind of
makes it
a bit more
bearable
to understand
and to take in
I guess.


Do not get me wrong
no one wants to die
or to be told they
have something like
that at all.

It's the fear of the
unknown
does not help
as well.
let alone
the final answer
we all dread
to hear as well
as  if
life could
not get
any worse
long run.

fearing
each new day
ahead
if lucky or not
you are
closer
to finding out
the scary truth
