Imperfect and Loved

For I am but a simple man
Trying to do the best I can
I feel I am blind I can't see
I pray to God please forgive me

I have made many a mistake
I want to be true, still I'm fake
That's not the way I want to be
I pray to God please forgive me

No matter what I do or try
I sit here and I wonder why
Is this the way it has to be?
I pray to God please forgive me

He gives me answers when I pray
I'm not perfect that is okay
I know that God, really loves me
He answers my prayers, sets me free

    Amen, Rick. He answers even before the words have left our lips. If there is one thing that I adore Him for it is his unconditional love...There is nothing we can do that will make him love us more or any less than He does for His love is perfect! :) Wonderful write...God bless!

    The unreal feeling is what we got when we are not being real to God. Love your poem, Richard. He will walk you through :)

    Richard, I can certainly relate to this poem, not being what I want to be and needing God's forgiveness. Great write! Love, Kim
