The audacity

I want to write a poem about one person
- human being
I don't know
But it is someone I strive to be
Perfection- maybe
Am I going to ever get there?
I make mistakes along the way
What is that person like?
She is not selfish
Think of others first
Generous to a fault
Always giving and look for ways to give
Because she knows that
She would get it from the Lord
Believing in self
Sometimes too much in her
That she would believe 
If she thinks it is right
Then it is right
Is it a fault?
Who knows?
But it is usually turned out to be the case
What should I say?
Is this person me?
Someone like me?
I can't be that perfect
Though I tried to be
What who do I try to be?
Who knows?
Perfection my friend
That is what it does to you
What does it do to you?
Just perfect
"Ask not have not"
I am paraphrasing
Didn't the Bible say that?
James 4:2
What other things did the Bible say?
I think you know
Apply it would you?
Now go to the point
Matthew 5:48
"You therefore must be perfect
as your Heavenly Father is perfect"
So there
You got it from the Man
Go get it
What's stopping you?

    I really appreciate the total honesty in this poem- when poetry " touches a nerve," it can motivate to improve where one is lacking in direction...I found it very encouraging. Thank you. : )
