Patience

Patience

patience is the most difficult to master
of all the virtues

desire says now and burns
like a hot quick fire

wait cautions gentle reason
make sure it's safe

but we have been in the darkness for so long
and we are cold

so naked and blind we give ourselves
joyfully to the flames

patience is what rises from
the ashes

mary, this is good stuff.
Seems to be a bit of a contradiction between verse 2 and 5 regarding patience...but I could be misunderstanding. Anyway, thanks for sharing the reminder of the virtue. :)
