I Will Not Wait

I will not wait
for the storm to pass,
nor for the light
to pierce the darkness;
I will not wait
for the night to end,
nor for the rain
to cleanse my spirit.
I will not wait
for the word
that’s not coming,
nor for the hope
of tomorrow’s ending.
I will not wait
for this life to be lived,
if alone I must take this path –
I will see it to its end.
