Patience is surrender,
to this moment,
and the next,
and to the one that follows.
Patience is the antithesis
for measuring time.
It is learned from a tree;
it is a soul gaining wisdom,
through endless life-cycles.
Patient is a Divine Spark within,
one that, on occasion, gets a little dim,
but never quite extinguished.
Patience is something
I am in high demand, yet short supply of.
It is an all but a forgotten virtue,
our entire society seem to lack.
Yet patience depends on no one and no thing,
as it is also… hope.
