This poem examines the interrogation of existence. The simple question begging for an answer here is; “does life wait for us or do we wait for its yearnings to come?” Read Pentecost Zachariah’s glaring poem to find out for yourself.

Life is a Waiter
The fragrance of your aura
Still lurks in my nose
Each breath I take
Reminds me you were here.
Mama told me life is a waiter, but
I guess my order isn’t on the menu…
Today I sat still to count my loss in Life
Alas, the echoes of your name is the
Rhythm piercing through my aching soul.
