Tired Too

Inspired by Langston Hughes’ Tired

I am so tired of waiting

                                    they say patience is gold

Aren’t you?

                                      more than you know

For the world to be good

                                       free from pain and fear

And beautiful and kind 

                     from your lips into the universe’s ear

Let’s take a knife

                                    I’ll bring the cutting board

Cut the world into two 

                                        To see its inner core?

See what the worms are eating 

                 I’m curious to see, what we would find

At the rind

        As long as we are together, we will be fine
