Patience Is a Sign of Inner Peace
|Patience is a sign of inner
Acceptance of the gift of life and death.
Though time may toll the passing of each breath,
In time one takes the measure of one's lease.
Each moment holds its small infinity,
Neither more nor less than that of years.
Clouds can tear down mountains with their tears,
Even as winds churn the changeless sea.
