I am a reconciler,

it’s what I do.

Take two sides and work and work

until they ring true.


But this problem in front of me

I cannot work out.

There is no lining up

causing me to doubt.


Monthly, I make a promise

to give every bit.

So how can I justify

asking to quit?


Promise after promise

a strong foundation is built

so breaking a promise like that

naturally brings guilt.


Now I must reconcile

based on what I know.

But it just doesn’t reconcile

I cannot make it so.


I need some relief

I am searching for some peace.

At least to let it all go

and let the guilt cease.


The feeling of failure

after I gave my all

is hard to accept

this an ungracious fall.
