Patience #poetry

In the mouth of the tunnel,

We’ve only began,

Let’s try not to trample,

Let’s take someone’s hand,

Help guide the blind,

The grieving,

The weary,

Find patience within,

In every step,

See things clearly,

At bay keep our fears,


It won’t last,

Look for the blessings,

Silver lining,

This too shall pass.

-Didi Oviatt

    Personally, I’ve always felt that it’s by bowing with an intent to help that a person truly grows in the hearts of others. Truly a heart warming post. In such times we should carry such sentiment of compassion within us. Thank you for sharing such a lovely thought! ❤ 🙂

        PS. The link in your insta symbol seems to be broken/malfunctioning I tried to follow you on insta but sadly it didn’t show me your insta page/profile. 💔
