Why Can't I Be Perfect?

-

Hurting inside

__as I piss you off every time

Just wanting us to not have

__so many problems

When all I want

__is to be perfect

Why can't it be possible?

You strive to find perfection in me

And I'm still not being that

I can't understand how I can still

__be making the same mistakes

Lacking the perfection

__that is needed to make you happy with me

I beat myself up

And still I never learn

I wish nothing but death on myself sometimes

Because it is you who is hurt

Nothing I ever do

Corrects what I have done

Fears that you will run

And love will be done for

All kill me inside

As I suffer and suffer

The regretted disputes

They echo in my head

I tried to solve it all

With not drinking caffeine

But God always finds a way

To destroy you and me

I just want the horror of my wrong doings

To eventually be gone

But "eventually"

__is taking too long

The punishments are all piling up

Higher than the sky above

Where no words can change

__my imperfect ways

It's just not fair for you

When am I going to change?

When will God stop messing

With my life today?

I can't live with my imperfections

Doesn't God even want me to change?
