I'M Just A Man - Poem by Juan Olivarez

I'm nobody special, I'm just a man.
And all I can do is the best that I can.

I am a sinner and I am full of flaws,
And I live my life, by the luck of the draw.

I make mistakes, like we all do,
I make as many, if not more than you.

But don't insult me, and don't call me names,
Don't pass the buck, or let me take the blame.

Remember to remove the plank from your eye,
Cause the speck in mine, is making you cry?

If first you look inside you'll see,
That you can be you, and I can be me.

There is no reason to call me out,
Cause the human race is what I'm about.

You live in your great land, and I'll live in mine,
Cause name calling to me is asinine.
