How Patient Can Impatience Be?

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


I am patient but even patience has limits;

for what am I to learn from those more insane that I?

Perhaps that patience has no limits,

and I am incapable of suffering fools gladly,

not even temporarily.


My heart goes out to man and woman alike,

offering my vision for truth, my view of the world.

Excitedly they agree and take a stalwart stance of right,

only to fall to madness within days,

true colours revealed in unforgiving clarity.


Am I deluded in my expectations,

seeking the undeniable truth of my hopes?

Perhaps I do not see, perhaps I only see humanity in clothing,

the coloured shells without core.

Perhaps I cannot relate and it is my madness that prevails.


How lost I feel in my lonliness,

without a real connection of depth, a travesty of living.

Why does my mind understand this fractured landscape,

and why do I know answers to their questions,

them too deep in madness to notice.


My failing is that I long for company, understanding,

the deep and abiding grace of love in simplicity,

without all the chaos of wasted thought.

I simply wish to create, express my life in peace,

without the havoc of lost souls.


There must be my opposite, somewhere.
