Patience

Patience is a virtual, it is not easily obtained  but once
you achieve it, you will never be the same.  It is like a road-map
just waiting to be read, for patience will make you strong and you
want be mislead.  

Patience is compared to an interstate you see, there are adjourning 
states you must meet.  When you have the ability to conquer whatever
frustrates you or gets in your way, just concentrate and say I am on
the road to patience today.  

I want let my problems steer me off the right coast, for on this interstate
you have to have patience galore.
