The Welcome Stain

If I could see things coming,
In life’s unexpected turns,
I could douse the tender kindling
Just before the fire burns;

I could chose another pathway
When a danger I foresaw;
And avoid fate’s evil dealings
And escape without a flaw.

But by stopping all my bleeding
I erase the welcome stain
Of the lessons learned from failure
And the insights wrought from pain.

The capacities of heart and soul
So minimal would be
Were God to grant my frequent prayer
For power to foresee.
