why do you?

i’m not perfect,
neither are you.
i accepted that
about you.
why can’t you
accept me, too?

why is it
every wrong step
that i make
it seems like
i committed a crime?

you make mistakes, too,
but i don’t condemn you.
so, why do you?



(i doubt you ever did.)


i don’t know if you ever noticed.
i wonder, did you ever see it?
after a comment, a gesture, a look or expression from you,
did you see my eyes turn sad, my spirit dampen or my smile fade?
(i doubt you ever did.)
did you care enough to notice?
(i doubt you ever did.)
