It's The Waiting



From the moment you get the heads up that things are happening, your body starts to do some interesting things.


First, there is a sense of heightened awareness. You hear all and see all.


Second, there is an inability to actually sleep. You are woken by everything.


Third, there seems to be a switch in the stomach. You no longer need to eat.


Fourth, there is a desire within your bowels, to empty themselves. You will not need to go for awhile.


Fifth, there is the endless checking in with your phone. You might have missed THE message.


By now you have also checked your bags at least 100 times.


Is it time? Is it time? Is it time? Is it time? Is it time?
