i never said i was perfect,
perfect is an illusion i was placed under.
perfect is something that is nearly impossible to achieve.
perfect is what i was
before i let myself believe that what you thought, mattered.
now i have given myself the respect
to acknowledge the fact
that i am not perfect.
i know for a fact that what i do
it's only superficial,
but i also give myself the credit to know
that i did it my way.
without anyone's help.
i climbed every rock,
i swam every sea,
i jumped every canyon,
i flew higher than i ever dreamed i could,
and somehow, to someone,
i made a difference.
maybe i made someone smile.
maybe i brightened someones day.
maybe i made someone laugh.
i never meant to make them cry.
i only wanted to bring joy to the world,
any little way that i could.
i don't have much to give,
but what i give, i hope is good enough.
if i made a difference,
then i succeeded.
and that's all i ever wanted.
