The Way of The Tortoise

"You have to learn how to wait for the things that can last forever. "

Sprinting like a tortoise towards love,
I'll watch the hares pass me up...

It's not so important to have the speed
if I don't know how to keep the lead...

I just have to trust in the process,
even baby steps are considered progress...

I'm working on perfecting consistency
I'm learning to hold fast to the good things...

My feet touch the ground, one foot after another,
slow and steady, until I am ready to be a lover...

And just like that, I spot a hare taking a nap...
Ironic, because as he sleeps, he dreams
he'll never be overlapped...

 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
