those who wait

The quiet man turned to his dog and said,
“What of all this sitting and waiting
for life to come to me?
Shall I not chase life for myself?

“They say all things come to those who wait —
but why wait?
If life is short and precious,
why not go to all things
rather than wait for them to come to me?

“Watch out, things,
I’m coming for you
and full of life!”

The dog gave a look of approval
and waited, until he came to her.
