For Heaven’s Sake

   Because we never know
      how much weight
   we can hold, how we timid
can be bold,    how much love
   we are capable of knowing,
       or how far, intellectually,
we are actually growing.
    We can never know how
much longer winter will take;
nor should we be expected to,
      for heaven’s sake.
   While we would imagine
        our capabilities are
    more promising than
       we would guess, a greater
   number of times we
      are asked to expect less.
