How can we be willing to accept?

With the wounds of life whose cuts are very deep

We will feel the pains we have ignored

No more can stern denial lock the doors

We stand on cliffs whose fall is very steep

We must find the guidance from within

Pain will show the route that we must take

Do not think by murder to escape.

Oh coward heart I’ve hardly yet begun

Better to take slow and steady ways

Do not climb the rock face of your grief

Danger is the weapon of a thief

The ways of love must always be obeyed

Yet how can we be willing to accept

That we must pay the whole price of this debt?
