They say that patience is a virtue. It indeed is. And patience is probably something that is never enough to possess. I have a soft corner for people who have loads of patience in their lives, for everything in their lives.

Some people are named patience and some people are just the epitome of patience. Nowadays, it is too difficult to find patience in people. Patience has that magical effect that can make all the difficulties, restlessness and obstacle vanish. But we, somehow, don't really realize that. Do we?

Patience has its own beauty. Patience has its own charm. Patience brings life on this earth. Have you ever got a chicken from an egg by smashing it? No. It is the patience of hatching for the right time. Patience is so underrated that we think that everything that is done forcefully is probably the right thing to do.

So how does one define patience?

Patience is the flutter of butterfly's wings. 
Patience is the silence of the prayers. 
Patience is the grace of the mountains.
Patience is maturity, 
Patience is healing and,
Patience is the insight. 
Patience is what I seek and, 
Patience is what you hide. 

Patience is probably the most simple human attribute, but still we are too complex by choice that we chose to overlook it and fail to understand it. But may be, some day..

    Thank you so much for the follow! The A to Z Challenge helped discover that I can really write in prose! Thank you for appreciating my efforts! :)

  5. @S. L. Hennessy
    I am surely still up for participating in the challenge. I just lagged behind a li'l bit. But catching up soon! :)

  6. I really admire those who have a load of patience. Honestly in a world so fast paced and so challenging, it becomes really difficult to maintain one's patience and sanity all the time.

    Yes, patience is my favourite virtue. Sadly, it is hard to find people with patience- patience to observe and admire.
