Baby Picture


Patience. Patience, baby Rocket.


That’s what you’ll need.
It’s a good thing to have plenty of.


You never quite know
when you’ll use it. And,
you never seem
to have enough of it.


But.
But.
But.


The secret no one tells you is
that patience
is plentiful. It’s always
surrounding      you. Always.


The clocks that tick
are patient.
The wheels that roll
are patient.
The flowers that sway &
the folks that wait until payday.


Patience is a feeling
you only earn
after you’ve felt
it.


So many things around you
try to
rob it
from
you.


They try to remove it
from life by
showing you magic
tricks.


But, baby.
Baby. That’s just speed.
An imperceptible patience.
