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 so 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’m sorry.

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.
