Poem: Patient

Yeah, I’m still kinda harping on the “in my twenties, ready for change” thing:



The desires of my heart play out in my mind

Like an alarm clock that never stops ringing.

Always thought I’d be somewhere by this time,

Instead of waiting for the changes life’s supposed to bring.

Lying awake at night, I survey my hopes,

Check off marks of my accomplishments.

There’s so much more to be done

Before I hear the words, “it is finished”.

With my hands folded, I look above.

Speak of my desires, to fulfill what I love.

Yet the more I speak, silence settles in,

and it is then I learn I must be Patient.
