Ideals – February 2011

Ideals

i cannot say i am perfect
because i am not
and like the notion of, ‘the one’
reflection is best forgot
television and films
may have filled our heads –
with ideals
that there is only one
for whom we can truly feel
but those all come to an end
and they are not real
we need to be honest
we need to accept our complications
the things that make us –
many people in different situations
and though it is fine to –
sail and long to be better
it is just a word
made up of familiar letters
i cannot say i am perfect –
or that i can make it better
but if you let me
i am sure we can chase the sun
i am sure you can lean on me –
and we will, we will have fun
