Silent and Co-existent
Silent and Co-existent poem
The lounge was filled with strangers waiting for their flight.
Despite the unspoken communion, the author felt isolated.
The author was anxious about the possibility of a delayed or cancelled flight.
Others in the lounge were also battling their uncertainties.
The experience was both physical and emotional.
Patience, resilience, and a willingness to confront frustration were required.
The wait was temporary and would soon be over.
Everyone was determined to refrain from demonstrating their inabilities.
The sense of isolation was difficult to shake.
The wait required a strong sense of control.
The uncertainty of the situation was overwhelming.
The wait required a sense of community.
The experience was one of shared struggle.
The wait required a willingness to confront one's own limitations.
The sense of anticipation was palpable.
The wait required a sense of determination.
The experience required a sense of perspective.
The wait was a test of one's emotional fortitude.
The experience required an ability to stay calm under pressure.
The wait was a reminder of the unpredictability of life.
