Minutes are passing
It’s your turn, what now?
Show me so I would know
Which pawn should I use
Will I take the bait?
Or will it be a check?
Now it’s a check
Protect the king
Hide behind the rook
It’s the queen’s move
But a knight’s mistake
Bishop’s avenging
But there’s nowhere to go
Is it checkmate? The end?
I failed and lost
I struggled in this battle
This battle of waiting

Minutes are passing
It’s your turn, what now?
Show me so I would know
Which pawn should I use
Will I take the bait?
Or will it be a check?
Protect the king
Hide behind the rook
It’s the queen’s move
But a knight’s mistake
Bishop’s avenging
It’s finally checkmate
Hail to the queen!
Hail to the king!
I’ve won in this battle
This battle of waiting

The Wait

It feels like forever
How much longer?
I’m feeling restless
This wait is endless

I wish I have a clue
So I’d know what to do
At stake is my future
This wait is a torture

The hours are passing
So what’s in the offing?
Be patient, don’t worry
But this wait is killing me

Agony of Waiting

The agony of waiting
The pain of not knowing
It seems like an eternity
To finally be free

Will I reach my inner peace?
Will I finally find bliss?
Will I be able to fly?
And reach high for the sky?

The questions that I’ve been asking
The solutions that have been missing
The uncertainty that is coming
Embrace it and keep on believing

The agony of waiting
The pain of not knowing
Will there be a happy ending
To welcome my new beginning?
