Accept Me .

Accept me for me
And please don’t expect me to change .
Love me for the person I am
And promise me it’ll remain the same .
Accept me at my worst
Before you accept me at my best .
But please don’t expect me
To blend in like the rest .
Accept me for my imperfections
Because this is how I will always be
But please promise me that . .
You’ll accept me for me .

I absolitely loved this! You commented on my work a few years ago and I haven't really been on until recently. Sorry about that, but I really love the poem!

What a great poem - I passed it on to my friend so she can give it to her parents.
