If

Written by Jacob Ibrag

If you ask me to stay,

then I’ll stay. If you ask me to

leave, then I’ll leave. Don’t ask me

to wait, I refuse to decay in the

face of your uncertainty.

  6. As romantic as this whole “waiting” malarkey is supposed to be … take it from me, don’t wait, waiting is a mistake. There is a world of people out there, that will value and respect your time enough to ensure that you are not left waiting and “decaying” in the face of their uncertainty.
