Patience in the breath

the true test in a wavering voice
wanting to make the sound
it has yet to learn to make.
Strength lies not in knowing
but in understanding,
for neither are as equal
as we all thought them to be.
there is a stillness in this moment,
in the breath slowly drawn in
while the mind wills cool steel
into a deafening bloodstream.
Amazing how slow a second is
the actions, cause and effect
of a single intake of air that
demands patience of those
who place their own demands upon it.
For there is power in that command,
mistook for strength so many times,
the execution of power requires
little strength, but endless patience,
Patience for the moment
patience for blood
patience for the breath.
Patience for the sound
of a wavering voice
that understands…..
