Living Life Poetically

Living Life Poetically: It Takes Time

The poem, “It Takes Time,” is for those moments when our grief, pain, hopelessness, or efforts toward a certain goal seem to persist with no change or little progress.

It may take time
To heal all wound.

It may take time
For flowers to bloom.

It’s tempting to assume
That good things will always happen soon.

But sometimes, it takes longer than we presume.
And the longer it takes, the greater our gloom—
The kind that can consume.

So, in our hearts we must make room,
And in our minds we must groom,
To understand that—

It may take time.
