“The Pain of waiting on time” By Mike Ile

waiting on time when you are somewhat desperate can be so annoying and at the same a nice experience in the exercising of patience. Mike Ile took to his Facebook wall to share his experience of waiting on time some years ago and currenlty. Read his own experience below.

Have you noticed how, when you have an expectation, time never moves
fast enough? All of a sudden the second hand on your clock seems to come
to a halt. The most punishing sound becomes that “tick-tock” that seems
to be taunting you like “ntoor….I will not move fast, come and beat

The first day I did…….ehen….in my life, I had that feeling.
The first football I got, time stopped.

Every time my parents went to buy our Christmas clothes, even the sound of the wind outside seemed like them arriving back.
The first one million naira I ever got, I stopped sleeping five days before it came. Time became stuck in a time machine.

Every time a new, beautiful babe said “I will come to your house
tomorrow afternoon”, tomorrow morning would refuse to move fast enough.
That’s when somebody will just be pacing about the room anyhow.

When good stuff finally arrived…..time flew by very quickly.
Christmas would last only two fast days. That beautiful babe would stay for only 3 ‘short’ hours.
That’s when guy man would say stuff like “Ah….but you only just got here na”
When you spent the night with a partner that has won your heart, morning came too soon.
I used to wonder why life happened this way.
Then I realised…….it was not that time slowed down.
It was my heart. It stood still.

All of those times when we fell in love or we were about to experience
good news; money, car, admission, a baby, etc, our hearts stood
still….like a movie in slow motion.

I feel like that right now. But I don’t know what’s about to happen just yet.

what do you have to say about this? Comments please
