My fuck ups

I want to write this as an apology,
like some off-set eulogy
that’s given before I’m buried,
or even carried
to where I might rest.
I want to become something better
than my personal best
where tests were only taken
because I gave them to myself.
So this apology will become a confession,
the way love becomes an obsession,
the way pain becomes our lessons
and the way risk becomes our fashion
in reaction
to the temptations
of everything.
