First Try

First Try

I long so much to hate

Even if for the briefest moment

But I love instead

I am filled with so much anger

Rage has taken root

In the very core of my being

But there is room for tenderness

I live with so much suspicion

Thinking myself incapable of belief

In anyone or thing

Still, I trust

I know not what to say

Even as I am with many thoughts

I have been here before

But it feels like the first time.

(Inspired by the song “First try” by Tracy Chapman)
