Ballyhoo

A mere mortal that’s me
No surety, no guarantee
A claim to perfection, there is none
I accept my failings, I am only human
Infallible I cannot be
But from life’s tomes
Learn - I do in all humility.

Imperfect perfections are what I am all about
Idiosyncrasies, contradictions, distortions in & out
Makes me what I am
An unextraordinary man
Effusive and radiant when happy
Incognito in sorrow, unseen in proclivity.

Perhaps ‘you’, finely chiseled, beautiful in mind
Could nurse my unconformities, be my life’s find
And together we’d climb the arduous trek up the mountain
Ride life’s roller coasters – a near perfection - attain.

If you feel up to it, why the palaver?
‘Cause this is it, it’s now or never
Why wait for eternity?
To embark on life’s journey.
I hope & pray that you do say ‘I do’
Amen to that…a “Ballyhoo”.
