A Poem by Lina

The cons of a certain type of waiting.


To wait is to exterminate all your urges to create, it becomes that you are delegating your time to procrastinating.  

I’ll give you some advice; don’t wait. 

When you wait, you are killing all your juices, you’re drying all your crying, and you’re dying! Stop and think, but don’t wait. Take your time to become and do, but never wait. If you get it, then start it. If you don’t, then find it. 

To wait is such a passionless attempt to live and forgive all your senses in their trances and their dances. 

I’ll give you some advice; don’t wait!

Never wait! State all the contents of your heart when you start to feel and appeal to the dire senses. Create all your diamonds with the silence of your thinking and your desire to create. 

And smile! Do it with a smile, do it patiently and thoughtfully, as slowly as you want, but don’t halt all the working and the doing and the smiling! Be happy! Be dappy and dapper, with a tiny hint of snapper! 

I’ll give you some advice; don’t wait!

This one flows well, although the rhyme is somehow weird, sounds more like proses than verses, moreover spoken words. I like the wisdom it holds.
Well done.
