Patience Is A Virtue



Patience is a virtue and patience I have So call me a virtuous soul No matter how long I must wait for you I'm prepared to accept my role Goals that are lofty and seem out of reach Need much perseverance and luck Determination is what will always succeed Let 'em know who's driving the truck Things that appear to be worth the wait Deserve more patience than others Like the love of a lady you've dreamed about Forever you'll wait you'll discover Patience is a virtue and patience I've had As far back as I can remember Way way back when I was just a toddler Waiting for the 25th of December Patience is a virtue, there's really no doubt Things can seem really quite distant A fact young mother's should teach their kids Not everything happens in a instant © Jack Ellison 2013

    Very well written and loved your creativity.. It appears we have become an " instant gratification society ".. I am familiar with patience, however, in my 40 years in Medicine I only had ones named Hope and Joy. I write with humor. sorry I couldn't resist..

    If only Dragon could learn some patience... He gets steamy and he wants everything now! Grandpa Troll says Dragons have trouble with patience... But Super Duper Mom here can solve that... Watch me!... Quit steaming me Dragon! I'm tying your sneakers as fast as I can... You watching? The rabbit goes around the tree and into the hole... POOF! Hey! Those were good shoe laces... You won't get the pretty ones until you can tie them yourself... Cough! Cough!...This might take time!... Sigh... LOL

    Yes this is so very true, mothers definitely need to teach their children that not everything is instantaneous...they are so used to computers and the phones and ipads that respond quickly! I wish that kids wouldn't get to use this technology until they are in high school, that way they can learn without distractions, but that wouldn't work, how could you enforce that,and why would you make them illiterate for these items! This is a tremendous write my friend! I really loved reading this poem!!
