Impatience - Poem by Claude H Oliver II
Impatience with what is
Moves one to create
What could be
What might be
The magnitude of the desire
To change what is
Defines the impatience.
Yet impatience exists
Surrounded by infinite patience
Change comes imperceptibly
Slowly and unhurried
Those who are patient
Sense changes – see changes
Become changed – adapting
Those who are impatient
Rarely see what they have wrought
They are denied the fruit of their thought
Not by those patient others
But by their own impatient selves.
