What shall we say and leave unsaid,
about the lateness of regret,
about the right to speak the truth,
about the foolishness of youth.
I should have spoken what I know
about the thing that hurt you so.
I linger here a moment still
attempting thus to pay my bill.
A too young man in leadership,
an ignorant hand that holds a whip,
a sect that springs up into life,
composed of criticism, fear and strife.
You doubt the ways of God today,
because he pushed you all away.
I should have spoken what I knew
to try and save you crippled few.
