Mo Salah says:
“How long should you wait for something you want?
For me, patience has always been the greatest virtue.
We strive to be patient in all things.
Especially when it is tested.
My new home has been patient for thirty years.
And I know they would have waited as long as it takes.
Patience always receives the best award.
And finally, we don’t have to wait any more.”
