If I'd Only Learn...

PAD Challenge Day 3:  For today’s prompt, take the phrase “If I’d Only (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write the poem.

If only, when the world drips gold
With mercy of new day
Before the chase of it unfolds
I took more time to pray

If only, when push comes to shove
And love to second miles
I would, without a thought of grudge
Walk it with willing smiles

If only I put others first
Instead of often me
... and we all did, the world would burst
With cheer and harmony
