Patience - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Pick it up.
Read it.
Put it down.
Leave it.
Return in a few years.
Pick it up again.
Doesn't it seem to make sense now?
I knew it would.
All you needed was to allow yourself patience.

For some folks this takes a little bit longer,
Than for others.
But at least you are now comprehending...
Right?
That's all that matters.
Now...
It's okay,
To place your left foot...
In front of the right one!
