dear monday me / october 4, 2010

4 Oct

patience is a funny word.

a homophone –

for one who is hospital bound, invalid, suffering, scared, waiting.

no coincidence.

you may as well be wearing a paper gown, exposed, unsure.

but there is hope, the doctor will come.

there are others waiting, their emergencies more urgent, their pain greater.

grab a magazine and take a seat.

there is much to learn as the patient of patience.
