Patience

I should have known,

I should have had some Faith.

I should have waited,

remembering to breathe

and just let go,

instead of clinging to this

creeping paranoia.

 

I do this more often

than I’d like.

Even with all of the

solid ground beneath me,

I still feel the vertigo,

as if I am dizzy.

 

I speak the words,

but I don’t believe them.

I’m falling for

the oldest trick in the book.

 

I should have known

the sky would stay above me.

I should have known

that all the threats were empty.

I should have known

that the outcomes were many.

 

I should have known

that the only way to survive this,

is to be patient.

I guess I know that, now.
