Let Us Not Defer

‘Hope deferred makes the heart sick,’
But sometimes it is not ours to pick.
Too many have awaited their answer,
Even liberation from the oppressor.
So it leaves for humanity many a questions,
And many times lacking one easy solution.
But let that not distort, let that not cause stumble,
For, though queries remain, the call is stay humble.
Think it not foolish, rather see it as wise,
To embrace long-suffering, for there will be a prize.
As one sage claims, ‘Desire fulfilled is life.’
But even the present points to eternity’s cry.
Hence, stay the course, endure with honor,
But do it not alone, even rely on one’s brother.
Keep your heart assured, though all come against,
For we will come through fulfilling hope’s dream in the end.
