Writing again I attempt to let this go
And words come again I feel them flow
Finally able to attempt to release
Down so far I'm on my knees
The weight hasn't lifted so still I withdraw
My insides dissipating it continues to gnaw
Can't sit idle and let it win
I won't lay down and let it end
Fight I must because I love them so
If only I'd quit ing up then they would know..
I try so hard but always make the mistakes
The ones that allow no give and only takes
Errors that cause the only ones I love to distance
I know the fault but have no resistance..
Over and over I try again
But my confidence is dwindling
Just one more moment one more chance
So their life I can enhance
I've been told that my errors only up me
And that may surely be
My life is the only one that I flaw
A hard realization after all
But still I allowed it to sink in very deep
What I sow is what I reap..
Mistakes I continue to make therefore I pay
What more can be said what more can I say
I keep taken their hearts even as I hear them break
When will I ever learn and stop all the mistakes
