I confess I struggle, impatient for change
but hesitant to do the work required for it.
I want the benefits, the reward without the hard
work and the fear that effort will produce failure.
Failure isn’t worth avoiding at all costs,
for the cost of not trying to change
is worse than failing.
Please forgive me and help me.
I want to be willing to try and to sacrifice
and to love—always to love.
