Only If…Only If Patience Did Exist In My Heart

By Daniella Djiogan

“If I don’t do it NOW, I’ll die”

Unrest, agitated, almost adhd

“I have to do it now”

For no strong reason in particular

No thought process


Just a sub-me ordering me to do it

And to my shame, I do

Only to realize that I didn’t have to

I wouldn’t have died if I didn’t

A few thought processes would have done the trick

But here I was…full with regrets

Of what could have been avoided

Only if…only if patience did exist in my heart…
