I was blessed

With peace but

Patience not that

I prayed for

Now I have

It and understand

The calmness both

Bring waiting is

A profound blessing

I learned that

It’s best to

Allow a River

To free itself

From a logjam

Rather than me

Jumping pounding stomping

On the trees

Let the flow

Of your life

Free itself from

Complications have patience

To gain peace


A philosophy says

That each of

Us has three

True loves in

Life usually the

First is yourself

Only then can

You truly love

Another in my

Case I loved

First wandering in

The wilderness and

Finally loved me

It was a

Path of which

I don’t recommend

Concentrate on you

First and dance

There with you

Before you step

On another’s toes
