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...
