Saturday, June 13, 2009

It gets really frustrating sometimes. Like plankton being tossed and twirled, tumbled and whirled by ocean currents relentless and strong, I feel helpless. As days flow in and flow out and everything around me ebbs and recedes, isn’t there anything else I can do but drift through life and wait?

And wait. And wait.

I noticed that your post has a time frame Saturday 13th. I'm still in Friday 12th! Weird stuff.

As for drifting like plankton, I don't know much about that but it is true to say that we make our own personal environment and luck too; simply by working at it.

Beautifully put. Sometimes things are out of our control, and all we can do is wait. Whether we like it or not.

if you FEEL that you shouldn't be waiting, don't! :-) do something about it.

but actually, i am also waiting, he he.. waiting for the signs... what about you, what are you waiting for?

just curious... why plankton? :) back when i had biology (HS), i remember planktons (magnified view) as colorful, iridescent, oddly shaped and strangely hypnotic.

seriously though, i know exactly what you mean about "drifting along". i get that feeling every once in a while, too

it'll probably be worth the wait. i mean, you wouldn't be waiting if it's not worth it. i am assuming of course you are waiting specifically for something, someone.

i hope that what (or who) it is you're waiting for is worth the wait. :)

@Eks, Mordsith
I believe it's worth the wait. And besides, I'd rather wait than regret that I didn't. :)

Why plankton? Plankton is my favorite word. I love the way it sounds as it is pronounced. :)

@Artemis, Unstranger
I am waiting for my life to begin anew. Sort of like a second phase. :) Until then will I be able to build and work on the life I want.

@Kayni, Don't Be a Slut
Sometimes it's less worrisome to just let the tide of life carry us along, huh? :)

Thanks for reading and leaving a comment. I appreciate it very much. :)

i am sure the wait would not be as long as in 'love in time of cholera'.

Florentino waited for Fermina for 51 years, 9 months and 4 days. But would it be as long as that of Raskolnikov and Sonia?

"...They resolved to wait and be patient. There were seven years to go; and until then how much unbearable pain, what infinite happiness!"

life is a waiting game, don't you think? and we keep on waiting until we finally realize we no longer want to wait, or the wait is just really over.

whatever it is, i hope you find peace in it. :)

Angeli said...

we wait until 1) what we're waiting for finally arrives, or 2) we grow tired of all the waiting and that's when we stop.

i just hope i won't fall under number 2.
