Don't Be Impatient
Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy


Don't be impatient -
Wait, wait, wait:
Than plunge into sorrow,
You would better be late.
By striving
And driving,
The mark is not hit:
'Tis wiser to grope,
And feel for a rope,
Than fall in the pit.

Don't be impatient
Stop and think:
Better have cool moments
On Despondency's brink,
Than leaping
And keeping
In water that's hot.
'Tis wisdom to go
On surely and slow,
Content with your lot.

Don't be impatient
Wait and win:
The last foe approaches,
And the last monster sin.
Pursuing
And doing,
With a firm, steady eye,
And a heart that's true,
You'll dare and do,
And bring glory nigh.

Don't be impatient -
Wait; be still:
Loud voice and great bluster
Are nothing but dumb zeal;
They're louder
And prouder
Than wisdom and strength;
They rise, but, alas!
Bring nothing to pass,
And perish at length.

Don't be impatient -
Wait, wait, wait:
Than plunge into sorrow,
You would better be late.
By racing
And chasing,
You soon lose your ground
Be patient and still;
In good time you will
With Wisdom be found.
