Instructions

As my life flows by
And I face moments
Of both joy and pain
I wish I had instructions.
Set rules to follow
How to parent
How to give freely
How to show my love.

I struggle to be my best
To be honest, loyal
To be loving, understanding
Every day I try.
If only there were
A simple set of instructions
A how- to manual
That would make it easy.

People say there is
That the words exist
Which may be true but
Those words don't fully explain.
How to love my enemy
Forgive the hurts I feel
Not to hurt others
Only that I should love.

I try to follow
Give and feel love
For everyone regardless
Of their sins or words
Still I find myself
Bringing pain without cause
Speaking false, craving things
But I keep trying.
