Who Am I


I am but a man

Full of failures and faults

Clinging to what is good

In a pile full of wrong


Struggling to make sense

Of this world we share

Where hope seems stifled

And hearts cry out


I do what I can

To bring some needed light

But my words are simple

And so unrehearsed


What hubris to think

That a difference is made

In childish verses

That hold no recourse


But it is all I know to do

These whispers on the shouting wind

Are just a prayer

That we are better than this


The world I seek

This beauty unknown

Is love for one and all

Who could want any less

    Unrehearsed words are the best because they come from the heart.
