Hurry Up And Wait

Patience is for those who have time
to wait. I like to think I have so much
to do that I have no time to wait. I have
learned like the rest of us that there are
some things that are out of our power
or reach and thus we must wait.
Now that I'm older the waiting seems
long and hard. No matter how I try new
experiences don't often arise. Maybe I've
done too much already. Things just don't 
go as quickly as when I was young. But
even then I remember I wasn't satisfied 
with how quickly things went, they 
always seemed to lag behind an 
ominous waiting period.
