Have Patience

Have Patience

A Poem by Devyani
"

Patience Pays we just don't know it yet.

"
"Your time will come, have patience"
But this is easier said than done
Where the world is moving forward
I'm scared I'll be left behind.

"Being different isn't wrong, have patience"
How can I? When I try so hard to fit in
I'm not perfection
Though I try hard to be.

"The truth always triumphs, have patience"
Living with a secret was easier
Circumstances changed
Now it's difficult to survive

"You will be forgiven, have patience"
Well that's what I hope for
Not what I fear
I fear being forgotten.

"You will succeed, have patience"
I don't have the faith you place in me
It's all a dark oblivion
Can't I just be confident for once?

"It's just a phase, have patience"
And time seems to have stopped
Hanging in the air
An unending oblivion I can't get out of.

I need help
I just don't show it yet.
Patience pays
I just don't know it yet.

The photo is the Chinese symbol of patience (which I have currently penned on myself because I am in dire need of some patience!)

Patience is by far the most important virtue, not for it's size and strength, but rather how it weaves in and around all the other virtures and can aid in all of life, in it's myriad of pathways. While there may be times to act quickly in ones journey on this planet, even though decisions must be tempored with thought, care and patience, as to not blunder into something far more dangerous that we might not be able to handle.

I enjoy this piece because while it reflects upon a persons impatience, it's overall result is showing that patience is important.

"You will be forgiven, have patience"

Well that's what I hope for

Not what I fear

I fear being forgotten.

These lines are so true.. especially for me right now :(

It is nice to see a poem talking about moral and behavioural concepts. Well written with simple words.
Hang in there. Patience pays. You'll know it soon!

patience is a real gift, some people have it some dont. patience may lead into boreness of waiting. we should only know that no body can get everything he wants. i really enjoyed reading your poem, nice images, nice flow

it is difficult to have patience for those of us who want everything all at once or who want immediate results. there is much wisdom in this poem, and is a good mantra for those of us who are impatient.

great work !, the way u crafted the natures sustaining fact is brilliant, everyone needs patience which can conquer destiny and re coin the phrases from impossible to possible. Ur poem relived me from an unknown pain and pulled me out of the clutches of frustration. thank u

This reminds me of your selfconciaence telling you to calm down and breath or even a close friend or boyfriend who is looking after you cause they care and they use simple but powerful words to tell you to stay calm. This is very inspiering. You are a great poet, keep it up!
