I’m not a saint, not yet!

I’m sorry that I failed you
Break the jar of your thoughts
With the tears of my dirty hands

The wind that blow thy way
Carries ink of sand
At the pane of your window’s eyes

The roof beneath thy head
Stands breaking in the lean
With my hands tied to the tree

The brightly stars thou count
puff up with dark spot in your gaze
As you were left in dismay

Mortal I may be
I struggle deep within
To rear the better side of me

I’m not saint
Not yet
For I struggle with the name
