Time and Tide

W-Q-T… if we took the time,
S-B-R… if we had the patience,
H-M-L… if we had the forebearance
What a different world this would be.

Al-Waqt… muda, boundless but limited;
As-Sabr… subira, with countless promises and zero guarantees;
At-Tahammul… ustahimilivu, the strength to bear burdens and the consequent knee buckling,
Would they have made such a difference?
