Consistency is viscous,
It gets you somewhere slow,
It takes you nowhere fast,
And you hover unstable, undecided,
For hours.

Every agonizing detail is,
Scorched beyond recognition,
Branded on your heart,
Or was that my mind?
I wonder.

Take your time,
But don't take mine.
Leisure is attended by the rich,
We attend church,
Hand out meager change.

Detail isn't acquired by hours
It's simply skill that's borrowed.
On borrowed time you
Poured emotions slowly
On a dish gone cold.

Not the sweetness of your syrup,
The begging of your heart,
Nor beating of your fists
Can send these knees crashing.
Remember?

I am not rich with leisure,
I toss meager change for faith
Cast petty thoughts aside
These knees will never beg,
They simply pray.
