I’ve earned them,
I’ll deal with them.

Sometimes, sometimes,
Trust can be regained,

Sometimes there are
Second chances,
But only sometimes.

I’ll learn.
I’ve been given many chances by a few.
And, I hope, honored them.

But I’ve learned that most
Do not give one another chance.

I’ll learn.
I’ll model for others
The grace with which one can give
Second chances, or more.

All it takes is a heart
A soul, an ability to protect
Yourself from harm;

And humility.
Enough humility to know
Anyone can need a second chance.

God does not make garbage.
Do not throw people out.
