we are always waiting for something
for it to be the weekend, to be finished school,
till summer, till we are 18.
we are always god damn waiting
and what’s sad is we miss every beautiful

lives waiting for tomorrow and for the future
we end up skipping our whole lives
and one day we will spend our last day
waiting on a tomorrow that will never come.
