Yield not to the fear of failure
Though the past none can erase
Through the welts of human error
Bleeds redemption’s healing grace

We are vessels, chipped and broken
Scarred by lesions of regret
But new day metes mercy’s token
…lends a leap not taken yet

Learning is a lifelong lesson
Yield not to depths of despair
But reach through the gates of heaven
With the whisper of a prayer

Chin up, precious, time for proving
Stumbles are not iron-cast
But teach us the art of moving
Forward, from frames of the past

Buds are full of flower-gardens
Hours burgeon with new bloom
Look, the light of mercy pardons
Past with morning's wonder-loom
