I do not sleep.

I wait.

I wait for there to be

No bedtime anymore.

I wait for high school

To finally be over.

I wait for him to call.

I wait for her to be

Okay.

For real.

I wait for spring…

And more importantly,

Summer.

I wait to become famous,

To get on stage and

Kick and scream and

Pour my little heart out.

I wait to make records.

I wait to sell records.

I wait for him to

Finally see me.

I wait for her to listen.

Soon.

Maybe.

I do not sleep.

I wait.
