Love Me (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)

I am so imperfect
I don’t speak the best English
I don’t even know when to use a comma,
But hey, that’s the game of artificiality
Will judgment ever go out of style?
It’s always:
“You’re not doing this enough”
“You’re doing too much of this now”
Why does “this” matter so much to you
When “this” is me, not you
Am I ever going to be enough?
You have put so many problems in my head
Will you ever give me a hug for just trying to “be”?

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
