I AM SORRY FOR MY FLAWS

I am sorry for my flaws…

There is no escape from my flaws
I try to be perfect, but find it isn’t possible
To even come close, my perfection is eaten by the devilish creature’s jaws
He bites down, and I wince, finding that my flesh is extremely edible

I want to be better, I try to attain
That magic ignorant bliss where others live
Where they are, there is freedom from fear and pain
Where they are it is easy to give, because they are allowed to live

The hell I have fallen into is deep and dark
It is a dirty, smelly hole, there are no meadowlarks
I try to climb out, to see the wonderful world without
But forever and endlessly its hateful claw grabs my leg before I can embark
And pulls me back into the pit, where my screams and shouts
Are not heard, there is no doubt
