We’re the ones We’ve been Waiting for
-Avleen Kaur Lamba
Waiting for the buzzing alarm to wake you up in the morn,
Or expecting your mom to drag you out of your yawn?
Waiting for some energy to creep into you and take you on a morning walk,
Or secretly wishing some genie could find you and make you fly with the flock?
Waiting for the time when you could actually concentrate in class,
Or hoping to stumble on a guru who could make you meditate without a fast?
Waiting for someone to befriend you,
Respect you, admire you, love you only when you’re you?
Waiting and waiting for someone who could excite your mind,
Make you write poetry and not let go of your foregone passion behind?
Waiting for someone to stand up and answer that moron,
Who has nothing to spread but everything wrong?
Waiting for someone to make you finally change the world,
‘Cause you’ve come here for a purpose, not just play and work!
Then get up you, if you think and feel the same way,
As We’re The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For, Heroes of Today.
