Patience

It’s not just about the wait, but a whole lot more.

Described by some as the most benevolent of virtues.
I am always nearby to help and support.
I reward you if you have done the groundwork,
And will remind you when you have not.

I am the 3rd P with my older siblings Passion and Persistence. 
Bringing it all together to give you success!

But sometimes I am forgotten, discarded and lost,
By people looking for shortcuts, 
and believing they know best.

So to those who have forgotten. 
Let me remind you.
I am the gatekeeper,
to where you will find my cousin Perfection.

If you ask for me and trust in the process,
I will walk side by side with you
and grant you a pass.

For we are all born from the same mother of potential
It’s my duty to assist you with any task.

So I say this to all my would be followers.
I can grant you the power to understand.
That better things happen at the right time.
So be true to my name, Patience, 
and great power and strength you will find.
