Making It Right


Artist: James Taylor (James Alexander)

Making a decision to do the best that can be done with the right intention and promise to oneself to feel the emotions and learn. It's so scary not knowing what will happen tomorrow. But, there is grace in just being even when it is clumsy, hurtful and undignified. Forgiveness is in feeling.

I am waiting for that enlightened soul,
The person who doesn’t lie or show,
The presenting, always presenting,
The cracks appear and give a home to rest in,

I see the dysfunction and make it my own,
Who has the problem? No one really knows,
But what is love without life?
What is there to hold onto in desire?

I’m still waiting for perfection,
But, I’m getting too old for intense projection,
I want to wake up to let go,
I want to love like the boy who sat on evenings’ precipice,

I miss my Grandmother,,
She held the truth and so simply,
She didn’t lie,
It hurt, but in so many ways she was right,

To matter means I have to take risks,
It may kill me to live,
But, it’s the only damn thing…
worth anything,

I’m still waiting for perfection,
But, I’m getting too old for intense projection,
I want to wake up to let go,
I want to love like the boy who sat on evenings’ precipice,

And maybe I will mess it all up,
But, I’m here and to feel this thing is love,
To step in and take the risk,
I say to it that I will be your friend,

It may kill me in return,
But in the end, there wasn’t going to be a consolation,
So, I’d rather feel the pain of loss,
Than the pain of never knowing what I was really made of.
