Living With My Mistakes

Updated on November 3, 2011

I Keep Trying To Improve

Life moves at an ever increasing rate

Trying to keep up is impossible for me

I will try with an open mind and and open heart

To make my life more like art

I made a few changes and my modest picture will show

Little errors and a few mistakes

I am sure my picture will shine because it is one of a kind

I am so happy to show off my picture proudly on display

Some people come to criticize

I listen and learn

A few friends offer to help and I welcome their time and effort

Because only they know I am blind and have no arms

Each day I struggle with obstacles that others don't see

I find them little bumps along the road that I call blessings that makes me realize

I am only human and I will never be perfect like God

But I have the spirit of thee

I can do the best I know how and then with tips I have learned to show off my pictures with great pride

For I have nothing to hide

Each day begins with one foot on the floor and on with a life that welcomes the masses

I have no legs so I experience life differently

I open my heart up with all my joys and fill each moment with a wonderful life that I have been given

Never turning back and feeling sorry for what is

Just enjoying what we have and how to make it better each chance we get

For my life is freedom with the words that others miss

I fly with every sky and sizzle with every steak

I am as fragrant as a flower and as warm as the sun

Life is one blessing after another and no time to waste

Because today is very special

For I do not know where I am going or who I will see when I get there

I have a blind date

I can't be late

For I heard she is as sweet as candy and as sexy as a Playboy centerfold model

She is as smart as a teacher

She waits this very moment and I can't find a thing to wear

Everything I try on doesn't fit

It is either too long or too short

What will I do

I will send her a text and tell her I am on my way

I am running just a little late

Boy will she be surprised when I bring her roses that I hold in my mouth

I hope I don't swollow one on the way

Then she might get pricked as we kiss

So I might just get chocolates instead and balance them on my head

But what if they melt then I will be covered in chocolate

Like a sweet strawberry dipped just fine

But what if I drop them then I don't know how I can pick them up

I know I will tell her the gift is me

I will wrap myself in a bow

She will know who I am and I don't have to worry about what to wear

Maybe it will be too much on the first date

So now what will I do with no plan in place

I will come with the clothes that I picked out and have a great big smile on my face

I travel by cab so no car to impress her

She will be thrilled by what is around my neck

For I will bring her a beautiful rose made of gold hanging on the end of a long chain

She can wear it often and think of me

For I am pulling up in front now a few minutes late

The cab driver said she is waiting with a smile I can't describe

For someday that woman will become my bride

Now we have a family together and make each day more wonderful than the one before

She knows life is for the living and loves it when I wear my Sunday best
