Impatient to live

Patience is a virtue.

That’s what I was told.

But how can I have patience

When I am going to get old?


There is still too much to do

and So much more to see

I just can’t sit here waiting

when life’s too short for me.


If I knew I’d live forever, 

I know this would be bad,

But then I wouldn’t think about

the experiences I haven’t had. 


So patience may be a virtue, 

to some it may mean a lot

but I have to be honest,

It’s a virtue I haven’t got.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
