29 Dec


I try to drive a straight line

But I must admit I slip up sometimes

I lose my stance and act out of character for this kind of man

It is then that I come crashing down

I start stumbling back towards the ground

 I have flashbacks, I do a 360 and turn my butt around

Yeah I make mistakes and the truth is

They just seem to be one of those things

Like love

That we were all destined to make

But my truth, I cannot hide

The truth is, I try

I try hard to make that truth a lie

I try my best not to make the mistakes

When I do slip up, I try to be quick to fix what I break

I am trying my hardest to be the best that I can

But still sometimes I slip up

I get flustered and talk too tough

I never am trying to make it pour like rain

Its just sometimes my actions make me seem insane

You know doing it over and over again

Falling into the same trap now that you did back then

Yes sometimes that is me

Its true sometimes

I am the definition of insanity

But we are all are partially insane

We all get stuck in our own cycles

And play the same losing game

I just feel blessed to know that the wounds do not remain

And that with time things change

The worst we are left with

A scar of what came

Yeah sometimes I seem to forget who I am

And when I catch myself

I find a corner and sit on my hands

I reflect and I reflect hard

I reopen the wounds as I stare at the scars

I begin to daydream and its then that I realize

Things in the rear view mirror are often closer than they seem

That is when I step on the gas

I change direction and I do it fast

I know I look crazy as I zip about

But I know where I am headed now

I just remembered, I already know how

I slip but it only lasts for a fraction

Then that system kicks in and I regain my traction

Most times I am living this life right, and it is then that I am living it well

But the truth is, its only because I often fail

I fall from grace but while I go on that journey

I maintain my faith

And that is the reason God seems to hold my place

I fall but it is then

That is when the lesson begins

It is then that I learn the formula to win

Because the truth is

I want to be the best as I play out my part

I want to have the same passion for this an artist has for his or her art

I am not trying to play with this

I just try to be perfect

And often I fail at it

  So I am thankful that this gift

True love

Has a lifetime warranty with it.

      Thank you so much, if only you know how i sit here and hesitate to post but these comments make it worthwhile. Funny these are just stories of things that happen to me, I slipped yesterday while driving through the rain and that experience led to this post.

      Happy new years!
