WITH HELP FROM GOD

If I were but
  Half as wise
    As I aspire to be.

If I could see
  Through other eyes
    The bother that is me.

As it is
  I realize
    I come to senses late.

Then do I
  Apologize
    With words to compensate.

For harm done
  By my words
    Or action that offends.

I hope one day
  With help from God
    To make a full amends.

(written for Christopher Raye Brown.)
