Forgive me...



Forgive me
I am mad
momentarily
and permanently

I grew up
in the war culture
mixed in with a
solid dose
of Vaudeville
and the blues
country-fried

I've made mistakes
said unkind things
waged wars
announced
and
denounced christ
still my soul
remains humbled
and scarred
and darkened
at difficult times
by the wrong light

which was the
right light?

Those that proclaim
universal knowledge
about
the origin story
and beyond
make me run
duck and cover

I want you to know
how much
I appreciate
and love you
for the
forgiveness
that you
show in your
eyes
and in the warmth
of your soul

Thank you
to the warm souls
who have
embraced me
walked with me
during my
time here
on
Mother Earth  

I've loved
the journey

I'm glad to share just a bit of mine with yours.
