Because I don’t speak,
Doesn’t mean I lack the courage
Because I don’t ask,
Doesn’t mean I don’t understand
Because I don’t cry,
Doesn’t mean I am not hurt
Because I don’t pry,
Doesn’t mean I am not concerned

I have a heart that feels,
I have a mind that thinks,
I am compassionate, so I know,
What can be said is best unsaid
I am just and fair,
But I am not perfect for all I care

I may not be the way you want me to be
Yet I am a soul, pray, don’t ignore me!


  1. Two lines for you from Pink's song "Perfect"-

    "Pretty, pretty please
    Don’t you ever, ever feel
    Like you’re less than
    Less than perfect
    Pretty, pretty please
    If you ever, ever feel
    Like you’re nothing
    You’re perfect to me."

    Those who ignore don't know what they are missing :)
