One step forward,
Two steps backward?
What a maid!
Careening through a maze of blemishes,
“Thoughts going wayward,
And heart as *Seward??”
What a lad!
Traipsing on the sea of Faults,
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!”
