Imperfect

Imperfect

I'm sorry I never quite lived up

To your expectations.

I'm sorry I never quite made it

To your destinations.

I strive, but I guess not hard enough;

I try, but I guess that's not good enough.


You always wanted me

To be something that I couldn't be;

A perfect model of a perfect child

Always happy, always smiles.

And you should know how much I tried

But I'll always be imperfect inside.
