Patience

Patience is the best

Shock – absorber.

Patience is the highest

Peace – discover.

Patience is the greatest

Perfection – believer.

Patience is the soul – power

Concealed.

Patience is the heart – tower

Revealed.

In between your failure – tree

And your triumph – tree,

The tree that is growing

Is known as your patience tree.

Yesterday

Patience was the beginning

Of my perfection.

Today

Patience is the flowering

Of my satisfaction.
