I am, I was, I will be

Location

I am not perfect,

I do not keep things clean, and tidy,

I do not avoid messes and messy situations.

 

I am not perfect

I do not eloquently express myself,

I do not keep people from making my voice their background.

 

I am not perfect,

I do not waste time on myself,

I do not stop people from putting themselves first.

 

I am not perfect,

I do not excel in everything,

I do not conquer any situation.

 

I am not perfect,

But my imperfections are,

and my human hands are.

 

I am not perfect,

but my humanity is,

and my thirst for growth is.

 

I am not perfect,

but my past was,

and my wounds were.

 

I am not perfect,

but my future will be,

and my dreams will be.

 

I am not perfect,

but that’s okay.
