On Patience, Again

Patience—not simply a virtue;

It’s our whole life.

For it is linked to everything;

There’s nothing more true.


There’s nothing more intrapersonally divisive than patience—the fight, tooth and nail, between flesh and will. Patience is the make or break; the achievement of our goals or repeated failure. The ultimate patience: resilience, to achieve—patiently—even after many failures.


Patience is the thing,

And awkwardly so,

That wise hearts do so to cling,

Blessed are they to know.


Patience unending,

Selfishness’s a recluse,

Silences sending,

Ending abuse.
