Patience for the Petulant- A Poem

What took me so long

Until I came around

With my head in the clouds

And my feet on the ground

 

And these days when I fix

My eyes upon us

I think back to when time

Seemed so unjust

 

How I wondered and wandered

And wrangled and worried

And now I know that

Life shouldn’t be hurried

 

My eyes were set downward

And I was called petulant

But change was a-comin’

Transformation was imminent

 

So I say and I think to myself

Why it took me

So long to see

This shift that has shook me

 

My heart and my hands,

From my top to my bottom

Just what I was needing,

Now I have gotten
