My Only Guarantee

Accept me as I am-
I have no guarantee.
A claim to perfection I have not,
since perfect I cannot be.
I, like you, am human,
prone to make mistakes.
Failure is not a character flaw,
it's just a part of the human makeup.
I live,
I laugh,
And I also learn.
My knowledge is incomplete.
I am searching all the time,
in waking hours as well as sleep.
I have a long road to travel,
as do you.
We'll learn our lessons along the way.
Wisdom we shall accrue.
Accept me as I am-
because I am me.
There is no one like me in the whole world.
That is my only guarantee.
