Feelings, thoughts, and desires that slowly build over a long period of time and culminate in radical change are difficult to describe.
However, legitimate desires are marked over time. They persist rather than fade. Tastes leave you hungry for more. Foreseen difficulty fails to intimate. Gradually and steadily, they grow until they cannot be ignored.
Waiting for fulfillment is difficult. Deep desires don’t come to pass overnight. Day after day, no movement is observed. Days turn into months turn into a year. Suddenly a shift occurs. Standing in the middle of fruition, the past doesn’t seem so long.
