WAITING
Mia Brillantes

Waiting
I’m ready,
no one else is.
The room is silent
I feel like
I have to
whisper.
Waiting
I’m awake
On one else is
I hear the
soft,
whistling sound
of breathing.
I’m not supposed to move
So I’m stuck,
Waiting
I’m bored,
no one else is.
Siblings are reading
Parents are chatting
I look out the window,
Waiting.
