Stumbling not to fall

Power taken

but not bequeathed.


Sorrow tendered

not lobbied for.


Foraging for peace

but reaping tumult.


Craving success

but procuring inadequacy.


Stumbling blindly

but navigating by faith.


Governed by haste

but tamed by patience.


Fixated on hope

but exceeding mandates.
