Lovable Anti-Hero?

Admitting that I’ve been wrong

is the easy part,

it’s moving on

that causes me to pause.

For all my flaws

show a different reflection

and I don’t know

the honest from the fraud.

 

I’ve worn many masks

to hide my weakness.

Said many things

I knew were never true.

Served appetites

best suited for a devil

and even lost my head

a time or two.

 

Beautifully tragic?

No, I don’t think so.

I’ve never had the hope

to lose the cause.

Loveable anti-hero?

Ha! That’s compensation.

‘Cause I don’t know

the honest from the fraud.

One day I’ll just ask God.
