Impatient me!

Patience is a virtue I cannot claim

My impulsivity is hard to tame

Caught in a situation less than ideal for me

I want to change it immediately

Waiting patiently for the right moment

Unfortunately leads to much discontent

To do nothing goes against the grain

Of my being, it tends to drive me insane

The instant gratification that comes

With modifying something to change the outcome

Is what drives me, sitting idle appears

To be a waste of precious time, I fear

That the moment would be irrevocably lost

That procrastination would come with a high cost

I want to make a decision, and move on from there

Once I’ve decided something, I try not to care

Any further about it, I do not want to spend

Further mental energy, to redirect it I intend


Life is messy with solutions less than perfect indeed

Despite best efforts sometimes the answers I need

Are not available immediately to me

There is nothing to do but wait, unfortunately

For all variables to be aligned in a way

That things get accomplished the right way

I get frustrated when this happens, I confess

I am learning slowly to rein in my distress

And be a little patient, because the universe has a plan

That requires me to not act right away even when I can

Passivity is hard when action is what makes you go

But sometimes you need to let things go slow…
