the list

I’ve broken some hearts 
when I didn’t mean to 
lived months of rain 
and skies of blue 
been to love’s buffet 
where there wasn’t any food 
bitten off more 
than I could chew 

I’ve traveled the world 
I like it here best 
learned some lessons 
from some pretty hard tests 
been down and out 
had to use reset 
turned my face from heaven 
and have still been blessed 

I’ve been betrayed by 
some I thought were friends 
I’ve been to a Priest 
and confessed my sins 
the list will grow longer 
before it can end 
always starting over 
and over again
