I am not perfect.

I have my faults.

I make mistakes.

I step on toes.

 

I am not perfect.

I tell lies.

I stand by the truth.

I look away sometimes.

 

I am not perfect.

I say sorry.

I get angry.

I am not self-righteous.

 

I am not perfect.

I pretend.

I regret.

I speak to the facts.

 

I am not perfect.

I am sinful.

I am born-again.

I can’t please everyone.

 

I am not perfect.

I am stubborn.

I am humane.

I am a child of God.

 

I am not perfect.

I am a staunch Christian.

I don’t read my Bible always.

I don’t pray always.

 

I am not perfect.

I wish I could help everyone.

I wish I could be everywhere.

I know wrong from right.

 

My name is Etsey Atisu and I am not perfect; I never will be but I still know wrong from right.

I am not perfect but I LOVE YOU
