Been waiting outside
Soaked to my kecks
Glued to my feet
Tears mingled with raindrops
Running down my head
Washing my face down my feet’s sole
Stuck I appear like the popular Everest
Itching to hear those words my thirst will fill
But I see the truth
Sparkling like thunder in your eyes
But my fear fears the clout
Keep far from me the truth
And tell me the lie
For you know why
