I hear it increasingly
From my own mouth and that of others;
“We will see” or
“We shall see…” is part of the answer vernacular regularly.
This idiom expresses our collective growing uncertainty.
This blanket phrase covers many things,
You may have heard yourself say it;
“We will see” is what people say when:
We are unsure.
Is what is polite instead of ignore.
“We will see” is what people say who don’t truly believe;
Is what we tell ourselves so as not to give-up hope.
Is how we process trying times that challenge faith;
Is when we want things to turn-out right
Is what I think after prayer and as I say “good night”.
“We shall see” is how to counteract when our intuition tell us “give up”.
Is the glue that keeps hope new
Is what your loyal lover says to you.
Is what some say when they want to let you down “easy”.
“We will see…” is almost taking the easy exit out;
Is to question your circumstance indirectly.
Is ever-skeptical about the situation;
Is becoming all too common.
“We shall see…” is when conditions aren’t just-right;
Is when “not yet” is insufficient.
Is when we test the waters,
When we narrowly believe;
When we protest disappointment.
Is body armor;
Is like a condom without a “plan B”.
” Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:12
