I Aint Perfect Yet [I Aint Perfect Yet]

One step forward
Two steps backward?
What a maid!
Careening through a maze of blemishes
She bleeds

“Thoughts going wayward
And heart as *Seward?”
What a lad!
Traipsing on the sea of Faults
He cringes!

Where are the roads to the land where Free lives??
Where is the salt that seasons and preserves?

Heal this bleeding soul! Oh Lord!
Lift this bowed spirit! O,my God!
A li’l more and this string will snap!
Pour Your mercy! Turn on Joy’s tap!

In His fire, feeling the hotness
Though it seems I regress
Still this I buttress
“I ain’t perfect yet!”
