Patience, Patience


In the beginning it was all about enduring.

My life was turned upside down.

To survive the upheaval I needed courage~

to forge ahead despite the reactions from others.

I needed perseverance to pick up the pieces of my life

and guts and pluck to turn the shards into something new.


Today my life requires a different form of patience.

I need fortitude, as I wait for the next phase.

I must maintain calm composure

as the stars continue to align,

and the clouds of indecision begin to clear.

Painful moments will come,

but a peaceful detachment and steady spirit

will ease the transition,

as life takes on a new shape.
