Compassion for Denial

I need to stand my ground & deny,
Yet I want you to please understand why,
It’s a fragile balance of what I know,
And the understanding I hope to show,
I ask for compassion for what I tell,
To look out for myself & others as well,
So many of the world’s problems,
No one person can solve all of them,
It’s humbling to know that I can’t help,
Particular areas in life where I fell,
Take what I say as an act of faith,
Just believe & you will make your way,
Trust that you can plan ahead,
To discern everything I just said.
