MY MANY MISTAKES
(9/14/13)


mostly
it's me

by misdeed

omission

or oversight

if there are
problems
in my life
I either
caused them
or put myself
in their way

I get
angry
with myself

it's so much
easier
to forgive
others' errors
than
my own

I know better

I can't vouch
for them

nothing
left to do
but fix
the fixable

let go
of the permanently
mangled

move on

improve

because
while I'm still
breathing

there's always
a chance

for perfection

for madness
