with gratitude for my place
this space I occupy
I understand nothing is over
nothing yet completed
what good to my store
I cherish...but not overly...
there is much left for which to atone
much left to forgive and of which to repent
but meanwhile I've taken to pardoning myself
and ceased to drive myself into a deep pit
by trying to struggle against the weight all that must yet
be amended...humility and peace replacing pride upended...
and when I get to that all discussion will be closed
and silence alone will reveal all to be disclosed
