Wishful Thinking

I wish I could say that I am perfect

I wish I could help you

I wish that I could forgive you of your sins

I wish that I could speak for God

in tongues of fire

in the language of the heavens

but there is too much hate in my heart

and my actions

and not enough love

too much imperfection

too many lies

too much pride

so many things wrong

I am sorry

I am only human

  1. To err is human. To forgive, divine. (not my words, but I forget who said it)

  2. Totally love this poem! Resonates with me.
