contemplation on the odu Irete Ofun

I have made mistakes
I still make mistakes
That's better
I'm sure it's no surprise to you
but it's good to say
out loud
to remind myself
let's be honest
to remind
everyone else
It seems lame to
blame it on my humanity
my inability to fully come to terms
with events in my life
but as with anything
Perfection is easier to imagine
than achieve
So I'll keep trying to get it right
and in the meantime
I'll preemptively apologize
for whatever stupid thing
I might do
Please remember
Deep inside
I'm not malicious
just full of flaws
whose cracks I try to fill
with love
