Reflections and Poetry

Impatience is Arrogance: a poem

Make a way for me
My time is short
and you must obey

Hurry up! 

I tell myself

anyone listening?


Hear my voice!

Not supplication 

but demand


Make a way

For me, my time

is short and you must obey.


Fruit of GOD

is patience

surrounded by Love.


Love not World

Rush not in self

wrapped in its own cloak




demands its rights.




Impatience fruitless

arrogance its root.


Uproot it!

Cleanse now the heart

revoke demand.


Purity lives


covers me in Love


Grace abound

No more demand

peace — not hurried stress.


Let my heart

learn to take time:

be still and know Love.


We’re not God

Nor God of time

Love lead on.



Comes after 

day unto day.


Love this life

Learn patience

humility lives



Dies the death

when Love leads on.



Our time moves on

live our moments


Breath of life

Love of man

breath humility

over me.

I so agree, but easier said than done. However, we can pray for the Holy Spirit to minister into our lives to make us more like Jesus day by day.
