Why do I have to
be so perfect?
Can't I just be me?
I never thought about
being perfect
'til you got a hold of me.

You rip my up.
You tear me down.
You break my heart.
You spin me round and round...

Babe, if I have to
be so perfect,
you ain't right for me.

Misa: I can't imagine a world without Light!
L: Yes, that would be dark.

You sure got that right!  I learned so long ago, no one can make you do or be anything you don't want to be, unless you let them.

If they are trying to change you, that is not love.  

Great job!

Words are weapons, toss them with care.

this is a nice poem... it wonderfully expresses that one shouldn't change oneself...

Heaven is not that place where you go when you die... it's that time in your life when you actually feel ALIVE!!!
