Mea Culpa

mea culpa.jpg

If only I had words

I’d arrange the letters

and write promises across the sky

If only I had the brush of an artist

I’d stroke vibrant colors

and paint your picture by the sea

If only I had the eyes of a prophet

I’d find the answers to every question

and see the shelter in the storm

If only I had been strong, if only

I would have been prepared

to show you the world that is you
