Just Human

Sit down

Good girl

Close your eyes when you pray

Always look happy, even if you aren't

Look at her

She never makes a mistake

Always does what she's told

Always listens

Always holy

But is she?

Maybe it's overwhelming

Maybe it's more difficult than it seems

Maybe there's more to her than meets the eye

She can't always be perfect

I can't always be perfect

My mind spins

What is right?

What is wrong?

Maybe I don't always want to be perfect

Is that really me?

What does one mistake hurt?

I can't let them know

They think I'm perfect

That I do no wrong

I'm human

Why can't they see that?

Just Human
