Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Patients

Sometimes, please be patient with me.

For someone who takes his time to understand,
I too have my moments of weakness.
And I become the impatient old man
who thinks he knows better.
Because I’ve been there,
and I think that I know a bit more than you.

But experience is still
the far better teacher than I am.
And I should allow you
to be who you are
and to find your own voice.

But don’t think it’s easy for me
to just sit back and watch you find your way.
I must learn to strike a balance
between holding you tight and letting you fly,
between holding you back and pulling you back up.

If you think you still have a lot to learn,
so have I.
