Perfect

 

I am not

 Perfect

I have never been

 Perfect

I will never be

 Perfect

You want me to be

Perfect

I try and try to be

Perfect

I fail because I am not

Perfect

You point out my

Mistakes

I feel guilt and shame for my

Mistakes

I see only that I make

Mistakes

I keep a mental list of my

Mistakes

Each day is a series of

Mistakes

I measure myself by my

Mistakes

My worth is only my

Mistakes
