Passion gets me in trouble
It motivates me to do things on the double.

Passion drives me quite wild
Especially if it's regarding my child.

Or anyone else for whom I care deeply.

Patience is something I've had to learn
What others were born with, I've had to earn.

Patience and passion go hand in hand
That's how I imagine the promised land.

Hope y'all don't find this too creepy!

    No, it's not creepy at all. It's very human nature, Nancy. I am more patient than passionate but sometimes I can be pretty restless!! GOOD poem and WIN. Congratulations.
