I am Not Perfect

I am not perfect.
I am just me.

I smile when I'm sad.
And laugh when I’m mad

I say things that I don’t mean
My clumsiness is often seen.

I laugh when nothings funny.
And never save my money.

I'll be the one to spill your drink.
I rarely care what others think.

I am not perfect.
I am just me.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
