Eventuality

Exercising patience
is often mistaken
for doing nothing
but don’t be fooled
discipline and restraint
are hard to cultivate
in a world gone mad
with ineffective action

You can wear yourself out
preparing for every eventuality
but it’s the one you didn’t think of
that will ambush you
with extreme prejudice
better to wait watchfully
as God’s plan unfolds
ready to do what you must
when the time is ripe.
