Long queues
tired faces
waiting waiting
their turn
eyes darting to and fro.
standing on the farthest wall
tattered clock
two tired hands
making their way around
as if
understanding the
anxiety,and
end to this
long wait.
patience
wearing out
sweat dripping
down the face
feet crying in pain
long hours of
standing in line.
relief at last
queue trudging
ahead
taste the sweet
freedom,
the end seems
Oh! so near…….
