A Poem by It's Me, The Miracle
"

A poem written on life, where the slow and steady wins the race

"
Queasiness being the key of the day
Ran around to find peace somewhere
A profound nap was the desire of the heart
Number of laps yet to pass, impeded the wish
Numerous laps that cover regular intervals
I wished someone to take over the next lap
But there was none in that end, made me run
Hurrying to the ultimate end, I saw me being lone
Am I alone here as all others are still behind?
Or am I alone here as all others have passed me?
While looking behind to see whether somebody follow
Heard a loud scream of joy from the ultimate end
Someone unknown made it to reach the goal
Wanting to see the winner, I hurried again
There are several long laps yet to be passed
Being eaten by the cruel and ugly desolation, 
I want to escape from this race of rivalry
Yet, I didn't give up and ran steadily to the end
Reaching at the end was like a dream come true
It seemed the entire world was waiting for me
With great joy, I was recognized with a big award
Though in muddiness, I could realize the truth
The competition demanded the last one to win

Thanks a lot friend
This poem rings so true to me. Sometimes I find myself wanting to rush something, more out of excitement. Then I have to wait,and remind myself that patience, is virtue, and good things really do come to those who wait. I remember situations in the past where I was rushing to do something just to get the result, only for it to backfire in my face. Now, that I'm older, I'm not in a rush because I know if it is meant for me, it is going to happen, but in the right time. And I find that I enjoy and appreciate it that much more.
