WHAT IS PATIENCE

Patience is saying, 
I love you,
 Waiting for the same, 
Patience is not saying,
 I told you so...
 But we learn from our mistakes,
 Patience is failing unabatingly,
 But still waiting for the best results,
 Patience is smiling,
 When you are told...
 You are dieing,
 Patience is keeping your 'friends',
 Hoping they will be true,
 Patience is sitting back,
 To write a poem,
 About your ex-love,
 Who left...years back,
 In hope of their return,
 Patience is waiting,
 For a drop of water,
 From a leaf in the Sahara,
 Patience is me,
 I am Patience,
 Makes you grin
 At the edge of a machete.
