Take Me As I Am

You’re too late to apologize to me

For your foolish, senseless decision-making 

Accidents happen, but you purposely

Lied to me in my face – teary-eyed, terribly shaking 


Can’t deny your lack of honesty hurt me badly

You wrecked me up real good, so far from free

I can’t stand the fact you drive me insane once again

I can’t handle the truth, so I remain ignorant then 


You never took me as I am, as I truly am

My true self broke free like a ruined dam

You left me with nothing but rageful regret 

You stole my happiness and made me upset


If I can seek a somewhat righteous approach,

You can have my mercy, you filthy roach…

I need you though and I hate to admit it

I want you to know that I still care a bit


I conjured up emotions and large feelings towards you

Engross me with your lovely, joyous spirit you once had

I endured so many hardships that hit me out of the blue

Sick to the stomach, but I learned to fake feeling so glad


Take me as I am, as I am

And I will do the same to you, to you

You stare at me like a cam

I feel heartless in your shoes, who knew


Somehow, I lost my mind long ago and I grieve

Oh, here am I, love, so take me as I am, as I truly am 

I take a quick bow before I take my sulky leave

Oh, I am here, darling, so accept me for who I am

Someday, you will see me through the lows and flaws

Oh, here am I, seeking things from above –

I am an obedient lamb, my long-lost love

I take my time to try to explain myself to you, to you

But, nothing seems to register because you’re cruel


Dear friend,

Will you accept me for who I am? Ah, man…

Reject me not and just take me for who I am!
