Don't Wait

By Valerie Maldonado

Don't wait for the weather
To be sunny and bright
To enjoy everyday together

Don't wait for the kids to grow
To decide that it's good
To pursue personal goals to grow

Don't wait for your partner or
spouse or parents
To approve of your unique talents

Like to create, write, dance, sing?
dream of traveling the world
Reach behind you for your second wing

Then fly, fly, fly
Reach for those stars
Look to the sky
Take every cliche
And fly, fly, fly

Don't wait for the right time
Or to have enough money
When is the right time?

Now, today, this minute
Tomorrow is not alive
Yesterday is a reel of vignettes

Don't wait to begin living
When everyday we die a little
Embrace what you've been given

Don't wait one more day
One more month or year
Don't wait,  don't wait

Don't wait for anyone to agree
Or to see things as you do
They can't, they are them you see
And you my precious dear, are you

So only you and you alone
Can fill your great potential
Don't wait,  get it done!

Live life to the fullest,
