To be perfect ~by me

Updated on March 29, 2016

To be perfect

Like you

My perfect

Wasn't even close

I tried

Gave my all

I cried

Coz I still lost it all

Red eyes

Swollen from all the crying

I didn't know why

But I couldn't stop trying

I wanted to be good at something

But failed at everything

I lost the battles I thought I'd win

Every dream I ever had

was always still a dream

I wanted to run

I wanted to escape

But there's no place to run to

Every place I go

It's all coming back

Got to face my problems

There's no running

No crying

That could fix this

Just me and my faith...

      Hi Angela, The end of your poem was your perfect answer, your faith. None of us are perfect but God loves us anyway.

      Blessings to you.
