Instant Life

The sun is patient for the moon’s arrival
The oyster for the creation of the pearl
The trapped fish for the return of the tide
But we are not patient for anything
Instant photos, Instant messages
Instant meals and Instant access
A life filled with immediate gratification
Is breeding intolerance and insolence
Lacking the achievement of patience
That brings crafted works of magnificence
That brings pride in waiting for better
