I Tried - Poem by Edna Zimmerman Prentis

Sometimes I am overwhelmed by life's problems,
I need the wisdom of Solomon to deal with them.
I pray for guidance and try to solve the perplexities.
At times, the answer is clear, other times, it eludes me.
I do my best to handle situations that arise,
And I say humbly, "Dear Lord, Please forgive my mistakes.
I tried."
