Praise! For the Gift of Writing

I started a poem today
today I wanted to give you praise
praise for all you give
give to those in need of aid
aid you only are able to give
 
I started a poem today
today I was ashamed
ashamed the praise that was my intention
intention turned to questions about your aid
aid you only are able to give
 
I started a poem today
today I threw it away
away I wanted to run
run in shame from your aid
aid you only are able to give
 
I started a poem today
today I wrote what was in my heart
heart was full of pain
pain from being in need for your constant aid
aid you only are able to give
 
I started a poem today
today I am humbled
humbled by the gift you gave
gave as a way to give aid
aid you only are able to give
