Redemption isn't easy

A man must choose  
Then answer to himself  
It must come from within  
No religion will help  
No homilies †
I'm a silent cowboy  
Sheriff on patrol  
Artist on the perimeter †
A writer for all seasons  
Strive always for goodness  
Like every man  
Subject to desires †
My face †
Never to be on a postage stamp  
I'll ride incognito  
You'll recognize me †
Sunday morning  
Faithful dog by my side  
At dawn  
Greeting the fruit man †
Waiting for the bakery to open  
Warm rolls  
Crossiants and scones  
Routines and chapters †
Goodness comes in all flavors  
7 out of 10 Commandments met  
Any given day  
I'm just a man  
I'm flawed  
Yet I try  
Try some more I will  
My mentor said  
"It's a long game"  
Those words carry me  
I'm introducing myself again  
To you ....
