Wednesday Riff: Unfinished

We want to be strong
But find ourselves weak,
Want to be right
When so often wrong,
Want to be smart
When idiocy reigns,
Want to be the best
As we collapse in a heap.
With you we can be
Real – Honest – Human,
Shake off the peer pressure,
Dust ourselves down,
Find a place to bring,
The clutter and the sorrow,
The mistakes and the muddles,
The misunderstandings
And the lost opportunities.
Our aspirations, hopes and dreams,
The smiles and the frowns,
The unfinished tale
Of our lives and our footsteps…
Our story
Mixed with your ongoing story,
Of change and forgiveness,
And generous acceptance.
