Statement of imperfection

If you prefer a laugh over a cry
if you never even wondered why
you hate a voice that’s out of key
just give it a try

What is perfect when it’s cold as stone?
what is beauty when it’s but a tone?
it is your voice that provides the key
to your heart alone

I’ll try to leave my fears behind
though i’ve always been of the doubting kind
so when you ponder over this
just keep that in mind

It’s a conscious choice for honesty
no shame of the past that had to be
no shame of the voice that comes with me
and no shame at all.
