I've never easily forgiven--

I know I should but I'm never up to it--

I always regret doing the right thing

because it never seems to prevail against

the realities of fear and ignorance

that unravel every stitch of the Grand Design--

but because my own failings hobble me

I cannot be forgiven for not trusting in those

strong enough to restitch that design--

vanity--vanity everywhere--in everyone

but those who stitch over and over in mute sorrow

here where nothing is easily given or forgiven...
