I’m not perfect for you, I hope you can understand

By Abel Udoekene

I’m not your type
yet something in me caught your attention,
I’m not exactly what you want,
but I’m everything you need.

I’m this shy person, I can be so withdrawn,
so lonely and sometimes sad,
I’m just a dreamer,
I hope you can see life through my eyes.

I’m different from what you are used to,
please pardon my ignorance I will learn,
“I’m too close to God” you exclaimed,
Sorry I can’t change that.

I don’t want to be like anyone
Forgive me, I love being me,
I just want to be my original version
I can’t be like your ex.

I remember, we were almost best of friends
till you sing that song of rejection,
I know am not perfect for you and will never be,
but I do hope your story can inspires many tomorrows.

What do you think?
