IMPATIENCE (c) By Polly Guerin

How did these levels of impatience grow?

Believe me, it is hard to remember, to know

I’m not making excuses, but there’s reason

We’ve outgrown patience, each season

Electronics prompt us with immediate action

Could this be the culprit of our reaction?

Instant photos promote immediate sharing

Sometimes without the personal touch ‘caring’

Click on ‘send’ emails expect quick response

Before we’ve had time to digest words to launch

No time to savor the moment, life’s treasures

Instant gratification escalated beyond measure

Navigating with speed through web pages

Frustration, even anger prompt the ages

To feel stress and bewildered by loss

Electronic immediacy has become boss

Now is the time to step back and demand

To turn off stress and let us understand

That the more patient we become, dear friends

Better health, better decisions result in the end.
