A Disappointment

I am so afraid I’ll disappoint you,
that my failures will hurt you
deep to the core.

I feel like everything I do is wrong,
every word I say,
to the very things I think.

I’m sorry for being who I am.

I apologize that I don’t measure up…
to perfection…
because that’s what you deserve.

To this day I have never met anyone who deserves perfection or who wouldn't be bored by it! I wouldn't wish perfection on anyone! Lovely poem just the same ;) thanks SS
