An Ordinary Imperfect Man - Poem by Orlando Belo

You always place me on a pedestal,
and I really don't stand that tall.
You look upon me as someone special,
and that is not me at all.

Yes, I'm quiet and unassuming,
seldom get angry or raise my voice.
My feelings are hidden behind my face,
and that is my personal choice.

I do so wish you wouldn't place me,
so high up in your esteem.
In time, I will disappoint you,
because I am not what I seem.

Please see me as I am in reality,
an ordinary imperfect man,
and when I do fall flat on my face
just smile, and accept me for what I am.
