I can only ask for you to take me as I am,

I know I am not perfect.

I'm a work of art still being worked on,

A complicated puzzle, with a few pieces mising.

I am undone, partial, incomplete.

Those are all words that describe me.

 

I can only ask for you to take me a I am.

For I don't know how to live any other way.

I live a life of planned out confusion,

I know what I want yet, I'm unsure...

I know how to get what I want yet, I don't think I can do it

Confusing? I know.

 

I can only ask for you to take me as I am

Please love me for who I will become,

for who I am right now is not who I was.

And who I am now is not who I will be in the future.

 

I can only ask for you to take me as I am.

I may not be the prettiest, or the peppiest.

I may get mad and withdraw, but you must understand.

I'm begging you to please take me as I am

 

For my heart is raw, it's been through it all.

It's been torn, scratched, cut, and broken many times,

but pushing that aside I hope you see my inner beauty still shines.

I guess I'm just trying to underline...

 

I can only ask for you to take me as  I am
