The Apology


whatever I cannot undo
the things not taken back
words spoken that were misconstrued
all of the grace I’ve lacked

the angry outbursts from my lips
the rich profanity
the hand rested upon my hips
the swift delivery

just know that I apologize
I beg your sweet mercy
though my action often belies
such bold humility

I want to do much better than
performances now past
so that I can claim perfection
before my God at last

then too to find true happiness
in life abundantly
rather than choose temptuousness
which causes misery.

I ask you in all humbleness
forgive each time I have transgressed
as I attempt to prove each day
that I improve along Christ’s way
