Even Now

Even now as reprieve lies within reach,

My ears would hear and crave your speech.

Even now that time has numbed and healed,

My heart forgives and anger yields.

Even now as my ascent to power assured,

My soul longs not for penance, only audience secured.

Even now as one has cause to impose his will,

My mind beseeches insight to you, a space I pray to fill.
