Flawed, but Undying...

If you place your trust
in my hands
freeing yourself
of any responsibility,
sad experience tells me,
you'll most likely fall-
as I watch to see
how hard you land...

If you set me on a pedestal
holding my principles and ideals up
as a holy test I should never fail,
realistic experience tells me,
you'll most likely watch me fall
flat on my "can"
it's "human", I am...

If you accept me as all that I am
I'll be your flawed, but undying friend...

For, if you'd love me,
honest experience tells me
you'd witness both
the light of the sun
and the dark side
of the moon
as the dual nature
and myriad universe
that I am.
