Being Myself

Sometimes I get so tired of me
I wish I could be like others I see
I'm open & honest, too blunt they say
Filter my thoughts don't talk this way

I want to be meek, humble & quiet
So today I think, maybe I'll try it 
 I get around people and don't last long
The words just come out silly or wrong

Talking negative or sarcastically 
Fussing or complaining usually
Just As soon as the words are said
I beat myself up (in my head)

I am not perfect and don't claim to be
All I can do is just be me
Making mistakes will happen to us all
Up on the mountain and soon we'll fall

God knows my failures & my faults
He sees my mistakes & knows my thoughts
Yet he loves & forgives endlessly
His grace & mercy are sufficient for me.
