Still

It is in my nature to falter,

to error,

to misunderstand.

It is in my nature to cry,

to grieve,

to wail in pain.

It is in my nature to doubt,

to fear,

and to despair.

But

It is not in my nature to give up,

to stagnate or be pitied,

to hate or grow bitter,

to spoil or decay.

I was given a gift of loving the world

and so I will continue to love,

and it will be my strength.
