Day 25 Patience

So today I tried to find the words again
To shed some light on where it is I’ve been
But overnight my face did swell
So I couldn’t see so well
And there’s not that much to tell
It’s not quite a living hell
Tucked away in this hotel
At least it’s not a padded cell
Lots of coffee here to smell
Starbucks, not Maxwell
All things being equal, I’m doing very well.
Trying not to be impatient waiting for my magic spell
Just wanna hurry up and heal in time to sing Noel
I may have to be content with a simple jingle bell
It’s easy to forget that healing takes a little time
It’s hard not to regret missing out on the sublime
I’m one heartbeat from bitter, but I refuse to end up there
I’ m surrounded by a thousand different reasons I still care
So yes, it’s still a mental game and yes, the game is getting old
But I plan to still be standing when I cross my next threshold
And if that means I gotta take the extra time to heal.
I’ll try not to be impatient even if that’s how I feel
After twelve years of saying it, now it’s me I must remind
Life is short; hope is real; now slow down and love the time
