 I am…

A lot of things

Good

Bad

Both

Many things

But

Not flawless

Sorry

If you were expecting something else

I always tell the truth

As I will now

I’m not a liar

That’s something

I

Am not flawless

But I’ll always be there for you

Even

If I don’t like you so much

Even

If you don’t like me so much

Because

That’s who I am

I am not a liar

I

Will always

See the good in you

Always

Even

If it’s not there

Even

If I don’t want to

Always

Because that’s who I am

I will always

Be there for you

Even

If you weren’t there for me

Because

That’s who I am

And I keep my promises

Even if you don’t keep yours

And I will have your back

Even if you don’t have mine

And I’ll listen to you go on and on about your problems

Even

If I stayed up all night doing homework

Even if I’m tired and have better things I could be doing

Even if I still haven’t forgiven you for that time you ditched me to go hang out with your ‘other’ friends

Even if I know there’d be no way in hell you would ever stop to listen

To just one

Of mine

Because that

Is who I am

I am the rich soil of the ground

Giving life to your leafy branches

Though your roots may gnarl

And pierce me

I will always be there

And I will always

Give you what you need

Always

Because

That

Is

Who

I

Am

I am not flawless

I’m me

60% sarcasm

80% ‘the good friend’

54% insecurity

75% geek

And

102% bad at math

And that’s just perfect.
