mother knows best

patience,

my mom would say,

is a virtue.

patience is a virtue.

be patient.

just wait.

practice being patient.

patience is a virtue.

four words on repeat

for the duration of my childhood.

and the last fruit of the spirit 

she would remind me of too:

self control.

patience is a virtue.

practice self control.

how could she see my greatest weaknesses before I even knew the world?
