The Reason For Flaws

If there is a reason

For us to grow

As people and spirits

From the ground below

Our flaws make us human

They smother our skin

But not in harm

But to help us win


Each mistake

We take in stride

A chance for us

To feel alive

Learning from these

Past sins and mistakes

Help us find

New tasks to take


I know it hurts

To be a sidewalk with cracks

But I'm not afraid

To be just that

Spread the word

Settle our roots

Help us grow

You will see the light too
