Of My Own Shortcomings - Poem by Francis Duggan

Of my own shortcomings I am all too aware
And what others say of me can't say I much care
As long as in speaking of me to the truth they stay true
How can I take offense at what is my due
A sort of a lowbrow of the rural town
Yet amongst others in words one who doesn't put others down
A flawless person is one I have not known
But the flaws that are ours we should never disown
On speaking of others never allow negativity to get in the way
From what is true never allow yourself to stray
And though some may look on you as one lacking in ruth
At least you are one who does stick to the truth
The truth I can live with as I have said before
That's all one can expect of anyone and little else more.
