Patience

How do you explain patience to an impatient soul?

Is it like the persistent waves that hit the shore?

Or is it like a mother’s forgiveness to the ones she bore?

 

Unanswered prayers and agony fill your heart,

And doubts of ever achieving your goals depress you.

For now, the world may seem so very cold.

How can I be left so alone?

 

How do you explain patience to an impatient soul?

Is it like the messenger who preached a thousand years?

Or is it like an unwed maiden waiting for her prince?

Even after she had four kids?

 

To the single brother who works for a house full of dreams,

To the single mother who prays for a house full of hope,

To the children who cry for a house unoccupied by a foreign regime,

To the worshipper who worships for a house in paradise.
