Once A Patience To Give Is Taken - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Once a patience to give is taken,
With it done to receive by anyone...
But one day goes away from tolerating,
Continued misunderstanding...
To decide the time has come to leave.
It is not a strategy to receive attention.
Or a wanted wish for more of it to get.

Those who sit nibbling on lips,
Tolerating a nonsense permitted...
Are seldom the ones,
Praying for more time...
To find others wasting it to be done.
Even the ones with patience,
Know when they've reach their limitations.

Once a patience taken from one giving it,
Suddenly gets up to move with no excuse.
This is a sign that should be obvious,
That 'this' someone has felt...
To have had their patience taken for granted.
And has realized a peace of mind to appreciate,
Is worth more to value if one returns to it to keep.
To determine it to be a permanent decision made.
