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 Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
