Bronze Star - 2,575 Points (1955 / Manhattan, New York)

Patience - Poem by Frank Sheehan

A true virtue
that we all need
to possess, cultivate

Sometimes it's hard
to maintain as you
squeal and squirm

Trying to obtain
the status quo
while tranquilizing

urges and desires
mangling your serenity
in a heartbeat

It has to be worked on
tried, true and tested
squashing inhibitions

Manifestations litter thoughts
circumscribed by dalliances
as you question disturbances

uttered within silence's
body of work
distributed by fate.
