Waiting For The End (Patience Is Truly A Virtue) - Poem by Glaedr the poet

Patience is a virtue, especially when you wait for death
do not rush to die! cling to every last breath
Your life upon this earth is but your only one
Tomorrow could very well be-your last rising sun
Live life to the fullest! Always do your best!
By doing so, your soul will truly find rest
Do not wish your death to come soon!
Dark and empty is this desire-like the new moon
Do not wish for death! This of you I cry
For only fate can decide-when it is time to die
