while i find myself ineffective,
and success is elusive - a wraith
i've been told there's a strength in my weakness.praise God, progress is different than faith.
and so, eating my chocolate, i step forth;
first timid, then more and more bold
i fail, time again, and often disappoint,
but i'll finish before i am old.
i'll finish my mission accomplished
(if battered and with brown-bruised knees),
i'll come to my goal line; step up to the plate...
home run. one day i'll win with ease.
though achievement may still be deceptive,
do not allow me to misstate.
remember: we're worth more than we're good for.
our worth is intrinsic - innate.
