Canticle

I AM NOT YOU!

Why is it such a big deal?

I mess up a little,

And I get hell!

I try my best,

But you can’t drag me down like this.

You make me feel like a horrible person,

With your words,

Your impatience is absurd,

I feel worthless because of it.

You can relate to me,

But I AM NOT YOU!

We are different people,

We have different thoughts,

We have different opinions,

I am different than you.

I love you,

I don’t know what I would do without you,

But you need to take a breath,

I need a break,

All this stress,

It hurts.

I try to be perfect for you,

I try to be what you want,

But I AM NOT!
