Granite Face

Patience wears a granite face;
its virtue is golden,
its nature empathy,
its harvest the flowers of success.
Among its companions stand
strength and perseverance.

Patience stands at the crux
of achievements built upon
sweat and sacrifice.
Mastering its art takes
iron discipline,
unlocks monumental rewards.

The secret of patience is endurance.
Its genius demands grit--
the way that love survives hardship:
that time,
walking on cragged peaks,
humbles mountains little by little.
