whatever God wanted of me

I'll have to deal with in some future incarnation

I have paid my price

every unmerciful whit of it

and what good I managed to do

in my ass-backward fashion

standing me and the others

with whom I've shared this life

in some kind of good stead

is as nothing to what further atonements

need to be hammered out of me

maybe next time I walk the earth

I'll be deeper and wiser and have a fighting chance

but whatever God wanted of me will have to wait for now...
