FORGIVENESS

I found myself once scoffing at
The efforts of a fool
Whose awkward failures made me feel
Superior and cool.

But, as I grew much older I
Could see another view:
That those more competent than I
Saw me without a clue!

And, yet, we each were only what
We were, and nothing more;
We’re stuck with that and even though
We’d really like to soar

Above the cruel reality
Of our quite finite selves,
No matter if we’re giants or
Just Lilliputian elves,

We’re set down in an axiom–
Forgiveness at its core:
We each just do the best we can
With what we have! No more!
