I am sorry for the mask

by Mey   Jun 6, 2007

I can't count on tomorrow
Can't fast forward today
Can't put on a disguise
to why I felt this way

I'm sorry that I like you,
I'm sorry that I care
I'm sorry that I spend my time
Wishing you were there.

I'm sorry that I need you,
I'm sorry that I lied
I'm sorry that I go to bed;
with lies every night .

I'm sorry If I Hurt You
I'm sorry for what I did
It wasn't my inttentions
I hope you'll understand

I'm sorry I'm not pretty,
I'm sorry that I'm not nice
I'm sorry I'm not good enough;
To be with you in this life.

I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
I've been sorry for so long
I'm sorry I cant be everything;
You've needed all along...

I try to answer questions
can't find a resolution
to all the doubts I had
that drowned me in confusion

You saw how I was falling
You tried to hold my hands
I know I hurt your heart
I still can't understand

Empty spaces will be filled
though you'll look back once in awhile
you won't forget the good times
and how I made you smile.

I'm not a perfect daughter
How I wish I wasn't me
I'm not smart like my sister
How I wish I could be

I'm not funny like my friends
Though I really try
I'm not strong like you
I'm sorry I sometimes cry

Why did I have to be the one
That isn't like the rest
Why couldn't I be the favorite
Why can't I be the best?

I'm sorry cuz lied
I'm sorry that I wear a mask
I'm sorry that my life
Isn't on your path

I'm sorry I'm not beautiful
I'm sorry I put fake pictures
I'm sorry there were things
I didn't talk about

I wish I was the person
I'm expected to be
I wish I could be anyone
Anyone but me.

    The rhyme and flow was mostly really good, apart from a couple of the last verses felt a bit forced, and there were a few spelling errors, but aside from that it was a brilliant poem on a good subject =]
