I know I'm not fearless;
I'm scared of lots of things:
I'm not scared of the dark,
but what's waiting in it.

I know I'm not brave;
I shudder in danger's face:
I know when I should stay put,
but I run like a soldier retreating.

I know I'm not beautiful;
I'm not even close:
I know “gorgeous” isn't me,
but I'm satisfied with average.

I know I'm not perfect;
I don't pretend to be:
I go about life trying to succeed,
but it only causes more heartache when
I fail.
