patience

BY MELISSA NIU

The constant fight with time exhausts
Our little friend named Patience
Time is a priority
Over meeting her acquaintance.


She can't quite understand
Why she's often been forgotten
For when she's present
There is love
In unlimited allotments.


She brings a sense of peace
And perspective for the youth
She allows the time to pass
For the surfacing of truth.

She is little but persuasive
With a funny sense of wit
While others run and panic
She convinces you to sit.

Those who get to know her
Seem to live a little lighter
And there are way too many
Who forget she makes things brighter.

She has a way about her
That makes people much more kind
And when you hear her secrets
You forget about the time.

She whispers words so wise
That make you not forget
To hold your vicious tongue
And stop the words that you'll regret.

Get to know this Patience
You'll find she's powerfully well versed
In helping you find love
By being patient with yourself...first.
