To Mr. Expert I Called For Help

I am only a human being
I can color my own mistakes
And still joke about it as
I can burn my laughs on a stake…

But you are an expert
Acclaimed as for your seriousness
Competing with your shadow, so alert
Striking for perfection

How may I come out even
And not scared?
As you’ve acclaimed yourself been
An expert at your job, as a dad, as a friend
And As a lover…

And here I am, alone to face
Myself in the garden of life
An expert as being myself
As that’s my truth and all I can embrace

As a Human I am,
Imperfect in so many ways..
How may I come out to you
Mr. Expert? As perfection my life misplays? ? ?
