Impatience is Arrogance: a poem

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

*

Impatience

impatient

demands its rights.

*

Selflessness…

sought

Impatience fruitless

arrogance its root.

*

Uproot it!

Cleanse now the heart

revoke demand.

*

Purity lives

Simplicity

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.

*

Tomorrow

Comes after 

day unto day.

*

Love this life

Learn patience

humility lives

*

Arrogance

Dies the death

when Love leads on.

*

Sacrifice

Our time moves on

live our moments

*

Breath of life

Love of man

breath humility

over me.

  1. 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.
