I'm sorry that I'm not the perfect person
I'm sorry that I'm not good enough
I'm sorry that I'm neirotic and depressed
So sorry
That I just don't care anymore
It gets to the point where it hurts too bad
when "sorry" is just never good enough
When life grasps you by the throat
And beats your head against the wall
And it just doesn't matter anymore
That's where I am
And I don't expect you to understand it
I don't want your pity
I don't want anything from you
I just want to die

Wow, those are some really powerful words!  Nobody should have to be perfect.  A friend is someone who knows all about you and likes you just the same.

A very powerful heart-wrenching poem, when I was a teenager I felt the same way that you did.  With time, I promise, it does get better.  Trying to be perfect or having someone expect you to constantly be perfect is very hard to live up to and over the years, it wears you down, leaving you hopeless.  Nobody can be perfect or close to it, humans were not meant to be perfect.  Don't allow anyone to make you feel inferior, just be yourself, never strive to be perfect.  I know all too well the effect it has on your soul and spirit.  Very well written and expressed!

Take caer,

Don't apologise for not being perfect, no one can be perfect. Just be the best you you can be....that should be good enough for all those around you. And for those that it doesn't satisfy, they are not worth getting worked up over. It's your life, enjoy it and don't make yourself suffer cos someone thinks you aren't good are!!

Love and hugs,
