1998 - 2010

I know I’m the biggest loser.

I trip, I fall, and I speak

Without being spoken to.

I know that I don’t

Fit in where you belong.

So I know I couldn’t belong to you.

No, you’re not worth an internal change.

I won’t change what’s mine so that

I can be yours.

But I could be yours if you didn’t see me

As who I am.

Everyone says you’re mediocre at best

But I can’t see past it, you’re beautiful

And I could be yours if I wasn’t me

But just as you are I would make you mine

So why can’t you want me just as I am?
