Poems For Your Perusal – #1: "Not My Best Foot"

"Not My Best Foot"

This is not my best foot
But forward it must go
This is not my finest hour
But it will have to do.

I must be self-conscious
Aware of what I lack
The will to take what I can get
And give so little back.

This is not my legacy
For that will have to wait
This is simply honesty
But far too far from fate.

What I have to offer
Is rarely ribbon-worthy
I simply must express
Emote, release, if only for me.

I do not seek your honor
I do not want your prize
Though this is not my best foot,
I will not apologize.
