A little poem about patience.



to do the same thing over and again
expecting a different outcome
is sometimes called insanity

i call it hope

About Andrew Kreider

I'm a poet and musician,transplanted from London, England to beautiful northern Indiana. By day I am a stay-at-home dad with our three kids while my amazingly talented spouse conquers medical school one long shift at a time. At night, I'm a performer and trouble-maker. I love my life.

  1. if it is watching the sun rise….i def call it hope as well…each day new and just as beautiful.l…very nice short, man…

  2. That sunrise is gorgeous!! Yep, MLK said that everything is possible with hope. Me too. Lovely poem 🙂

    PS Read the “Snowblower’s Lament” to my husband (finally)…no, that’s not my husband’s name… and he loved it too–excellent! And congrats on your “Bloom” 🙂

  3. It depends very much on what it is that you are repeating, but if past results have been bad, it’s probably not smart to do exactly the same thing again, which was Einstein’s point.

  4. Aren’t these scenes amazing ~ I can never tire of them though repeating something over and over again will drive me nuts ~

  5. Beautiful, Andrew — I like this succinct, pensive piece. 🙂
    And… it’s probably a little of both! 😉
