They say Patience is a flower that grows not in everyone’s garden,

and yet what a vital flower to have in thy garden.

You see Patience is a gentle friend

that sometimes wants you to stop and smell the roses.

Patience doesn’t ask you for much

except that you wait, turn and review.

I once grew Patience in my garden,

but soon rushed on to other flowers;

Hurry, Haste, & Now were their names

and they brought me instant gratification.

I watered them daily, trimmed & weeded,

and they grew while Patience wilted away.

The flourishing Hurry, Haste & Now attracted

the worst kinds of bees that stung my face as I

bent to smell their perfume again and again. I

learned my lesson as with a puffy face, I

turned to Patience who brought me butterflies
