I Am Not Perfect

If I don’t ask you for help

I may never begin

nor finish a project

I wonder what others will think

if it “just isn’t perfect”

I read you can never be perfect

nothing is ever perfect

What I write will not be perfect

My prayers to you

won’t be perfect

Jesus, help me be okay

with not being perfect

Perfection is for you only

My words are my gift to you

Help me accept

my imperfect perfection

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
