I Am Patience

Patience, the very virtue we've layer aside...In patience's voice...Good day; I am patience..I've been patient like aged wine laying dormant;

Good day 
I am patience..I've been patient like aged wine laying dormant
Locked up in your hearts 
I deserve to be heard

I understand, I do 
I know your minds have been reshaped 
Now defined by what the nation gives
Swept along by every wave setting anxiety ablaze
We continue to shift left to right

Our money is now less 
Naira a feeble ant
In the sight of dollars towering height 
Prices ascending daily 
The rich rule the poor taking all of earth's oxygen 
Leaving the poor to suffocate 

Little wonder why 2k no longer serves a good pot of soup 
And transport or fuel is now gold
Why businesses are so slow like they are riding on a camels back 
It's now true that the so called rich now lack.

But see how you have bottled me so long in your hearts 
And let impatience take many to sell their hearts to dogs in search of what the world gives. 
Yet we say God's time God's time but how many if us are able to wait for God's time 
I am patience and i have faced rejected from you my friend 
But still I wait till the very end

Why sideline line me and struggle with the world.
Yes things are hard but to fulfil God's demands you need me.
Patience, the virtue you've hidden behind 

I've slept for so long in your hearts embrace
Waiting for you to remember my grace 
We cry for the nation everyday and pray all night 
But the truth and what is right 
Is to wait for God's delight 

So we stand side by side
With patience in our hands 
His will will always precide and in His plan we abide 
In his will we will confide
So wait let God arise
