My Time Will Come


In time, I will join the party

But I am still getting dressed

I’ve past the stage of not knowing what I want to wear

Oh lord did I pick out something nice

But it’s going to take time to put on

It’s going to take help

But when they open the door for me in the car

And I take that first step out

I will have arrived

It is not my time now

Oh, but that time will come

It is not that time now

But, in time, I will arrive

I can see the end even at the beginning

I have the reasons in my mind for even starting

Yet even during this journey I know there will be a series of course corrections

Minor alterations

To make sure this suit fits perfectly

Oh, it is not my time now

But that time will come.

And when it comes

A voice will come out that has never been heard before

A stage set only for me

And I will command it

I used to not only fear failure

But I used to fear success

What would happen if I achieved my dream?

And couldn’t handle it?

But weeks ago both fears dissipated

Sifted through my fingers like sand on a beach

Now, only left with moments throughout the day

In which I can create at will

All for that moment

When I am fully dressed

And fix my tie one last time

To capture my destiny.

    Great words, inspiring as always. Fear can be so destructive but it takes courage “to capture destiny.” Well done Evan. πŸ™‚
