patience is a stolen virtue........


patience has been STOLEN from me!!!
ive searched high and low.....
cant find it!!
not in the sock drawer.....looked under the sink......
checked even the secret hiding place!!!
cant find my PATIENCE.......

what to do???
awkward, to say the least, to be saddled with the absense of patience.....

and im, sadly, forgetting the sound of its voice....
patience is a fading memory in my esteemed cadre of memoir.......

im trying to feel what it felt like as it wrapped its benevolent wings around my anxiety-ridden body...
enveloping me in its transluscent tranquility.....

i must rebirth another anthropomorphic form of patience....
for without it......
this girls on the edge......

teetering.....impatiently......

those who wait.....yes.....
they are correct.......
their behavior modification therapy has worked......

they are the holders of the trophy.....

good things have come to those who have waited!!!

NO NO......
they are not sitting ducks.....
i really must stop judging them so harshly......
they are complacent.....
perhaps they practice yoga....

their breathing excersises have earned them the 'waiters
trophy'.......

okay.....
admittedly, that trophys not on the top of my chanukah list!!
but it looks very well indeed atop their built-in bookshelf.....

perhaps the criminal.....the one who stole my patience will return it!!!
no questions asked....

i will then, clearly, have to enter the witness protection program....

would that i had the answers to this dilema.....

perhaps if i sit verrrrry still.....patiently....
my lost virtue will return........perhaps....

one can dream!!!
