Part I.
I AM NOT PERFECT
Why are you blind
to my faults, flaws, and failures?
Do you only love me
for the good things that I do?
If I mess up,
will you let me go?
You know, I don't know if you know me,
if I truly have a friend.
Are you a friend to me
or are you wedded to my image?
Do you treasure me for me or for my kindness?
And you say all I touch turns to gold
ignoring the coal I dig up along with it
Because you see only what you want to see
You transform me into an impossible standard...
I can't live up to your expectations
I'm always on my guard
Afraid I'm not who you think I am.
Scared that I am.
Because I am.
I AM NOT PERFECT.
Part II.
I AM NOT PERFECT
But You are.
You are not blind
to my faults, flaws, and failures.
And You love me anyway.
You are the answer to my desperate cry
Does anybody love me just for me?
If I am a mess, will there be anybody left?
You are always there, and You wrap Your arms around me.
I taste your loving kindness
on my tongue it is sweeter than honey.
When I AM NOT PERFECT
there is still You.
I can't live up to their expectations
I'm always on my guard
Afraid I'm not who they think I am.
Scared that I am.
Because I am.
You are I Am.
I've published this before under a different name (Almost Reverse).
