I AM FLAWED
I AM FLAWED
Accept me as what I am for nobody is perfect.
I am not broken, I am just an imperfect person.
Who isn’t? I am just like anybody else with
flaws, weaknesses, imperfections that I do not
hide for I do not live in illusion or acting based
on other peoples’ expectations or opinions of me.
I know I am flawed that I learn to laugh at my flaws
and I even say “thank you, I already know that”.
As far as I know, my flaws only affect me and no
one else for it is beyond my character to hurt or
belittle and to use or take advantage of other people.
He is the One who knows my flaws more than I know them.
That I don’t give a damn about what others think and say.
I am not torn between my reputations based on their opinions
and my character based on who I am; strengths and flaws.
I cannot live in pretense, façade, lies just to please anybody.
I do not wear a mask to hide my imperfections and I cannot
be cracked from the negative things I hear and said about me.
I neither say much nor ask too many questions for it is
best to observe and listen than to compare, complain and
criticize for I am no judge, as it is He who would in the end.
As I said, I am flawed and one of my flaws is staying away
from negativism and that includes people closed to me.
Although it is harder to let go for it is really heart breaking.
However, I rather stay away and remember the good things
about them and the beautiful memories I had with them or
I rather walk away than pretend that everything is all right.
I may stay away or walk away; but I am always ready to be
around when they need me and help them in any way I can
rain or shine or come what may to support and assist them.
