My Time

I stood in the background.

I hid in the shadows.

Behind the scenes, yep that was me.

Now, all of a sudden this light is shining on me.

I knew it was my time by this feeling that was all over me.

I felt this big sigh of relief exhaling from me.

Tears of joy just started welling up and pouring out of me.

This journey hasn’t been easy, but it was worth every second.

The trials and tribulations didn’t feel good, but they were all for my betterment.

I cried, prayed, dreamed a many a day.

I patiently waited and waited some more.

I’ve camped out in front of so many doors just knocking.

No answer.

A day came and I’m glad that it did.

It’s my time and I’m going to take all of it in.
