Neither complete nor uninitiated, Know that feeling of being in between? Almost best friends, Almost promoted, Almost in love, Almost finalized holiday plan, Almost committed, Almost reaching the destination, Of Almosts. The world teaches you black & white early on, But it's the greys you've got to learn to recognize later. Not just recognize but to accept. Cause you can't fit a "grey" anywhere, Neither here nor there. And you'll learn to unlearn, That every story has not only a beginning & an end, But also, a grey in-between!
Sometimes you wait, and then wait some more, "Be patient", they say. "Good things come to those who wait", they say. But the wait leads to expectations, Expectations spread like weeds, Dis allowing roses to bloom.
Then one fine day, You're jolted out from your reverie, Cause you're in the midst of the very dream, Living it. Observe. Be grateful.
