to wait in the not knowing
is brave
the flags sit at half-mast today
and the air is thick with fog and heavy with grief

and there are so many people waiting
waiting for answers
waiting for it to make sense
waiting for their children to come home
waiting to be reunited

and they are brave because they wait

they wake up every morning, even this one,
and they sit in the not knowing
and they wait
