or too dim to see the picture,
I’d carry less blame for the way
I lived my life.
I could say
I acted blindly,
but I was clear-sighted and bright.
were mine to make,
the prizes were there to be taken
— if not for me,
at least for the sake of my children, —
yet I didn’t realise the stakes
were so high.
it is not too late
to put right the mistakes I made,
and change the course of young lives
before I die.
