Waiting Room

How can a place hold so many emotions?

There is a mother worrying to death for her child. A 5-year-old girl has the saddest look on her face.  Her orange dress and the yellow flowers on it aren’t enough to make her look happier.

On the next chair is a woman with her 15 years old daughter.  They seem fine but worry sits on their face. As they walk out I hear whispers of pregnancy.

The director yells next and a guy stands up with a blatantly broken arm.  His face oozes with pain

An old man sitting in a corner.  He is so quiet that I think he might be dead.   He seems way too tired and too old. Fragile.

By the door, there is a pregnant woman that looks so miserable. I have no idea what is going on with her but I hope the best.

Looking at all these people I am so glad I am just here for pollen and dust allergies.  A little visit to the hospital can show you how lucky you are.
