Patience is the Essence of Life

Written by: Suzette Richards

Idolatry makes me out of patience 
with the people lacking nous in essence, 
flitting away an all too frantic life.

One cannot hurry the lessons in life. 
Adopting great fortitude and patience, 
also childlike belief, is of essence.

Joy comes at a price; the very essence 
of wisdom attained through trials in life. 
Silence: trusty companion of patience.

True patience is the essence of a Life.
