Somehow you'll escape

The Waiting Place…
… for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or a No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.
Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake

or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a sting of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.
NO!
That’s not for you!

Somehow you’ll escape
all that waiting and staying…

--Excerpt from Oh, The Place You'll Go by Dr. Seuss

  1. "Remember one thing, the dream you can see
    pray to be, shake this land...
    We can all be free
    Maybe not with words
    Maybe not with a look
    But with your mind
    But with your mind..."
    Lyrics from Cat Power's song, Maybe Not.
