Long Suffering Poem by Clarence A. Graham, Jr.


God is long-suffering
He gives us time to realize many things

We are on Earth to learn lessons
It takes whatever time it takes

After we have learned all our lessons
We do not have to come back to Earth

Some of the lessons we mustlearn are to conquer fear
To learn love, compassion, patience and to conquer hatred

In all, there are about thirty lessons to learn
So, it takes whatever time it takes

If my recall is correct
One learns a lesson each time he is on Earth

I have learned all my lessons
So, I do not have to come back to Earth
