I try
And I try
To be better
And better
I try to be perfect
I want no fault
All for you

I only wish to be everything
And give you everything
I didn't know
I was hurting you

Again and again
You told me I was fine
There's nothing wrong
I should have understood
And accepted myself

We all have faults
It doesn't mean there's something wrong
I just wanted to reach the impossible
I wanted to be perfect
For you

I'm sorry
I should have seen
You love me
For me
So this is a poem I've been trying to get a grasp of for a while... finally started to kind of get the words for it. Some events have helped it come along more. I've always tried to be perfect, and be better, especially for those that deserve it from me, but no one can be perfect and I really shouldn't get so worked up over something so impossible to achieve. I'm a supporter of being who you are and nothing else, yet I tried to change myself, and that's a terrible thing and I feel awful about it. anyway..
Hope you like it!

I tried to be perfect to, lost the girl I love.....and now we are just like strangers......a cruel but good life lesson. Don't ever change for someone. :)

it definitely is a good lesson, I got lucky that she loves me enough to forgive me and give me another shot.
I'm sorry it didn't turn out the same for you, and I wish you luck.
