The Waiting Room
Carly- Expecting teen mother
Suzy- Young Child
Can I go back and see him? Will he be okay?
What do I do, what's my mother going to say?
Is it going to hurt, am I gunna cry?
I guess I'll just wait here
I guess I'll just lie.
I don't want to go back there, I don't want to at all, I was just playing soccer, why did I fall?
Doctor, why can't I just see him, maybe one last good bye?
Just came from Rugby, got hit in the eye
This waiting can stop, this nightmare can end, I'm so anxious already, i can no longer pretend
Are you ready for me?
Is he almost done? Please move it faster, I must see my son. He was fine just one hour ago, yet now here I sit
yeah let's get this moving I can't stand this one bit.
Yes, move this along as quick as you can, my anxiety's rising
This wasn't the plan
I'm sorry to say this, but you'll have to sit tight, not too much longer, don't put up a fight.
But we can't cause we're anxious, we can't just sit tight, so move it along we we'll put up a fight
Don't do this to us, I can't wait anymore,
Yes, this is the worst, my foot is so sore.
So it seems like this wait, will go on for some time,
SOME TIME as in what? Doctor this is a crime! I can't wait anymore, please let this be done
Can you give me update, please check on my son
Her son can just wait! But this leg it can not,
NO! her leg can wait do you see what I've got
Please doctor please, I have somewhere to be, I can't wait around I have someone to see.
Okay, It seems I have a few names to go back, lets see here, is there a Carly Vonmack?
Oh yes doctor yes, umm that's me umm yes, So I just walk back here.. okay I'm ready I guess
Carly walks off stage
So are we all next?
Yeah, I got here first!
Yeah. Is it time for us now
This is the WORST.
Okay Stop. There's one more name on this list, it says... Suzy-
That's me! oh coming, I'm coming I can't wait to be free.
Suzy leaves stage
Now is it me,
Or my son john, I haven't seen him in hours, where has he gone

Yes me, I'm Carson lets go, let's go or I'll flee
Carson leaves stage with Doctor
Doctor returns back to the waiting room
Oh doctor please, I'm the only one here, just let me go back and I won't shed a tear.
Okay are you Rose? Just follow me on,
Oh please be okay, oh please my dear john.
Carly re-enters stage
Well what can you say, please give me a sign. I need to know now
Ma'am you'll be just fine
Suzy enters stage
I need to know too, will I be okay?
Carson enters stage
Yeah I'm with her, what's with this delay?
Again now we wait, we anxiously stand, awaiting our fate, doctor you must understand?
Biting our nails,
Pacing the floor.
Sitting in silence,
I can't wait anymore.
I can hardly breathe now, I just want to be free, I can't take this right now, oh anxious me.
