Poems of Faith

A Rock Is Patient

A rock is patient
It sits through lightning, snow and grime
Rocks don’t complain, they take the time to change
A rock is patient

A plant is patient
A seed grows when the time’s just right
It knows the day’s for sun, the night’s for rest
A plant is patient

A cow is patient
It stands all day to chew and eat
It gives us milk in cold and heat and rain
A cow is patient

Sometimes I’m patient
When people ask, I stop and wait
Sometimes it’s hard, but it feels great to know
I can be patient

The Master was patient
He did just what God asked him to
I hope I grow up like ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
For He was patient
