Moments of Imperfection

I step into the same place at the same time 5 days a week.
I just want to move along so I present myself as meek.
Don't bother staring you won't find what you seek.
Afraid if I speak too much a secret will leak.
Pace myself to the next class-extra 5 mins to sleep
Made sure to put my wool coat to blend in with the sheep.
I toss myself onto the chair like a heap.
Start looking for a composure to keep.
She calls on me
but I don't know what formula equates the triangle
All I know is that their stares are set to mangle.
So I start to dangle.
Although I came here to grow I just couldn't let you know that
I am not perfect.

I really like this. The meter is kind of awkward, which makes it better in my opinion, because it's unexpected. It could be a song.
