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,
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.
