I donít wanna
go the extra mile.
Iíd just as soon
a short cut.
I donít wanna
spit and shine.
Hit and miss
is good enough.
I donít wanna
worry about
crossed tís
and dotted iís.
Close enough
will work for me.
I donít wanna
take responsibility
for every nit
there is for me to pick.
Its overwhelming.
I canít take it.
I donít wanna
be something Iím not.
Better to confess
my flaws,
than fake it.

"Better to confess
