Test of Love

Tongue and cheek
Well I said
Some things
I should not have said
Regret what I brought
I paid to play
Too late
To take it all back
My back against
This wall
Where should
My tongue
I apologize
My wants
My eyes
Guilt wears a disguise
To my surprise
You saw through
My uniform
Policing my convictions
A player’s ambitions
Follow by its anthem
Plant them
In the back my mind
To maybe one day
Harvest wisdom
To be faithful
To keep you
From being hateful
Staying with me
Showing me
A true testament of love
I’m truly blessed
And grateful
