Fuck-Up – Keshia L. Nowden
You ever wonder why Santa Jesus God put us here?
You see fuckups everywhere.
Some inherited from wealth,
I’m a reincarnated fuckup
I may have been the catalyst for being expelled from the Garden of Eden
I might have been the one to sell Jesus out at dinner one night,
or started World War I with a bullet to a noble’s dome.
Maybe Santa Jesus God hated me that much, he put me in this sad woman’s body,
A woman who doesn’t know what forgiveness feels like, because no one gave her a chance
to correct her mistakes.
Even if she did correct every mistake she’s made, people still shun her, like a contagion.
They say “all is forgiven,” but it isn’t.
“She’ll always be a fuckup,” She senses, “She’ll never change.”
So I don’t change, this won’t ever change.
What difference will it make?
I’m just waiting for the next life to happen,
So I can begin the process again.
