Expect Delays

The best advice can come
From the strangest of places
At the unlikeliest of times.

On the corner near city hall
Sits the wisest of street signs
Blinking slowly its message.

“Expect delays! Expect delays!”
Have you ever heard
Such sensible words?

When you’ve failed
For the fiftieth time
And the words “Try, try again.”
Are more cruel than kind.
Perhaps it is best
For a gentler touch.
Pursue your dreams.
Never give up.
But expect delays. Expect delays.
