Waiting for the pause

They talk.

We think as they talk.

We wait for the pause.

We hear.

We think again, when is our chance.

We are on the starting blocks.

We are chomping at the bit.

They pause.

We’re in.

Our chance to stand on the podium.

Our chance for the limelight.

Our chance to talk and perhaps only be heard.

We hear but we didn’t listen.

We are always waiting for the pause.
