I Can'T Be Perfect

Poem By tiffani staar

I’m sorry baby
That I broke your heart
Because I, too
Was torn apart

But you see my dear
I have to do what they think is best
I cannot disappoint them,
So I must not protest

Yes, babe, you hit it on the nose
What they expect, I know I cannot achieve
Come on! Did you really think
I was that naive? !

No, sweet heart
You do not belong in their plan for my perfection
You did everything you could to be good enough
But you just didn’t pass their inspection

Don’t waste your tears on me, my love
Because loving me is out of the question
So pick yourself up
Get out of this depression

‘Cause baby, we both know
It’s too much for them to expect.
It’s unattainable
No one’s perfect.

I Prevailed

All you ever did was take
Was it my spirit? my soul
You wanted to break?
I couldn't do it anymore

I Wonder

Sometimes I wonder
Is there any cure
'Cause right now
I'm just not so sure

I'M The Girl

I'm the girl
With he bright blue eye's
That can see strait through
That little disguise

Stereotypes

I'm a cheerleader
So of course I have no brain
I won't show my feelings
Therefore I feel no pain

Allow Me

Allow me
To make your day
And chase all your fears
Far away

His Broken Heart

It seems like hes always in pain
Always being hurt
And left out in the rain
