PATIENT FEE

In a resistance
to what others will do,
lay the price of a struggle
to wage through

Strict discipline
amid towers of dishonor,
detour paths
toward journeys often longer

Tough travel on trails
unpaved but required,
is a triumph rarely recognized
but quietly admired

While the impatient
settle in safe patterns,
the prudent chart purpose
in crucial matters

Those decisions merge fractions
of pure meaning-
a patient fee
that is needed for believing
