I besiege Your Grace to address a set
Of grievances submitted by your most
Humble servant in good faith and to
Your noble review.
I have been troubled at late by circumstances
Not of my doing or choosing, yet thrusted
Upon me by those who bear me ill and those
Who place little value on virtue or reason.
I must inform Your Grace that my reactions to
Those circumstances were not always wise and
Prudent, nor were my intentions always pure.
Yet I proceeded according to the very nature
Of my person, and in so doing, hoped for a
Benevolent outcome, even if the end of my
Path was not as defined as it should have been.
It is for that purpose I address Your Grace to
Determine the extend of my guilt, my weakness
Of bearing and any lack of faith in my fellow men.
I wish to overcome the flaws of my action, yet
Strike, if necessary, against any foes of my good
Intentions. I desire to remain victorious in virtue
And on my quest to a higher purpose, but beg to
Be striken down in humility from time to time,
Should my zeal subdue my good senses.
