When I look right at something I don’t want, then try
To feel good anyway, that’s what I call patience.
I know that’s not the proper way to look at it.
True patience can’t be negative, even a bit.
The best meaning for me, one that makes perfect sense,
Is the focus on something my heart can’t deny.
It’s no trouble at all for me to sit and wait
If I make of the waiting an experience
In itself – one of wonder and heartfelt delight
Through the while before being fulfilled by the sight
Of the thing manifested. I build the suspense
Through deliberate focus. It’s how I create.
Forcing myself to do something that I do not
Generates a momentum not good for the soul.
Time perceived is affected by the way I feel.
I can know that my waiting can be made ideal
By the choice that will make me contented and whole.
Emotion is the thing to use rather than thought.
I know God rides my rocket and sees everything
That would make my life wonderful while here on earth
In this time space continuum. I have no fear
That the thing that I’m wanting is farther than near.
I shall savor each moment in consummate mirth
Of all that is concocted to make my heart sing.
