learn to be content

Bitterness leaks into my pores

reaching to the deepest cores of my heart

as the dissatisfaction slowly rips me apart

and I burn with anger and irritation

when I wait with anticipation

for God to give me what I yearn for

but first I must learn

to be content with only Him

it’s just so aggravating

to have this nagging conviction

that I must wait

that I have no other choice

but to listen for His voice

when it comes to this issue

and while I know it’s the man who pursues

the woman

I just wish it would hurry up and happen

but it’s highly unlikely

I’m just so incredibly desperate

and if something doesn’t happen soon

I’m going to die!
