Eagerness impatience
Like infatuation
Fleeting needing
You cant wait
You want it now
Your burning

Giving up on the thrill of the chase
The finished line isn't as thrilling
As imagination has created
Yet so much expectation
Suddenly your there
Never absorbing the moments

Never have you enjoyed the process
The progress the growth of it
Never basking in the process
Now your there
Wondering is this it
Not pausing ones to appreciate

Only gazing at the end
Not seeing the awe of it
Having built all hopes for the end point
Never really seeing that the process
Is it which is worth reveling
Nor acknowledging that the delays

And progressive pausing and adjusting
yearning hopes and longing
Endless wishes dreaming prayers
Those annoying irritant waits
Loosing knotting checking
Rechecking each pace day to day

Never knowing
That it all had answers
That Each experience process
Falling and standing
Cancellation rewriting
Despair hope

Are the mount that releases
The passion of your long awaited climax
To a refined peak
Sharpened inside out
Carve into a fiery glow
A mount of release

And said, “I can summon a million of men
