Patience is a virtue that everybody knows.
Its opposite is one of mankind’s greatest foes.
Without patience in our lives we are destitute
Because without patience man is just a brute.
But liberally sprinkle life with patience with everyone you know,
And your relationships and friendships I can attest will grow.
When you use it with your children their love is you reward.
You’ll see a change in family life because there’ll be less discord.
So when your ire is raised be careful how you speak.
Say things with great patience and you’ll get the reaction that you seek.
