I wrote and recorded my poem yesterday,
But before I sent it on its way,
I decided there were things I should not say
And so I shut down my computer and went to bed.
I started writing about staying in the “now,”
But majorly got off-track and I do not know how
I did not see the big black cow
Or do I mean a white elephant?
Well today it has been bugging me,
I feel I let myself down, don’t you see,
Those of you in my family tree,
I am sorry if say something you’d rather I not,
I am sorry if I embarrass or put you on the spot,
I am sorry for other things that I have forgot
And I hope you can get over it.
I need to do this for me,
Writing the poem in an under an hour, this is the key
So it’s possible there will be things I do not see.
This is my disclaimer.
Through this, I am becoming free
To know who I am, and that, I shall be,
And if you don’t want me to, I’ll quit for a fee,
But until then, here I am, and I do hope you’ll watch.
I hope and I pray that you’ll let me be me
And though we may not always agree,
May we love each other without apology,
And that I remember to let you be you, too.
