I Could Do It Better - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I don't understand as good as I should.
And I know I could do it better.

I don't do my best when 'that' I could.
And I know I should do better.

Patience to listen to comprehend,
I could do this done better.
Deciding my attention undivided to give,
I could do this done better.
To empathize to realize and not compromise,
I could do this done better.
Forgiving to forget and to apologize,
I could do this done better.

Live life to let live and let it be done,
I could do this done better.
Appreciate the people who go and come,
I could do this done better.
And accept,
This I could better.
Without regrets,
This I could do better.

Live life to let live and let it be done,
I could do this done better.
And accept.
This I could do it better.
Without regrets.
This I could do it better.
