“THE WAITING”

Does this feel like sitting on a time bomb,
waiting for it to explode?
Aren’t we as paralyzed as a stomped bubble gum?
Can we read the signs, so upcoming dangers be put on hold?

Will there be another repression?
Aren’t we terrified of the same bloodbath in this country?
Some of us are in amnesia, the haunting past be left forgotten.
Some have gone skeptical over the parties.

There’s a lot more than meets the eye.
Are we ready for the storm?
The watchful eyes warn the minds not to lie.
Everybody may get lost in this intoxicating calm…
