|School Run Colours|
He stood there, day after long day, braving the elements, fighting for his space.
He stood there, through wind and rain, snow and hail, light and dark, thinking of what lay ahead.
He stood there, searching for a hint of calm, the sunshine, the starry night under a cloudless sky.
He stood there, dreaming of the day, the time, the moment, when freedom would be his.
Freedom from the shackles that bound him to this earth. Freedom from the burden of responsibility that was his to bear. Alone.
He stood there, waiting for the mist to lift and the fog to clear, so he would see the world again. See it clearly, the way he always meant to.
He stood there waiting for the dawn to come. But reality stretched time into unblinking darkness.
I am also linking up with Prose For Thought hosted by the lovely Victoria at Verily Victoria Vocalises and with The Prompt hosted by the wonderful Sara at Mum Turned Mom.
