I’m sorry I’m an eyesore to you because of the way I look. Can’t be helped I’m afraid. I think you look gorgeous, though.
I’m sorry I’m an earache to you because of the way I speak. If you only knew how hard I try. There’s so much I want to tell you besides I love you.
I’m sorry I’m a headache to you because of the way I think. Just show me the way.
And I will show you.
I will show you how to love even when it’s not really deserved.
I will show you how to laugh even when there isn’t much to laugh about.
I will show you how to forgive even when there’s so much to be angry at.
I will show you how to flirt and how to dance like there’s no tomorrow.
I will show you how to give the best hugs.
I will show you how to be age-blind, disability-blind, colour-blind and colourful.
And I will show you how easy it is to make people feel better.
Isn’t that worth something?
Isn’t that worth everything??
I’m sorry you’re my biggest heartache because you believe I have no worth.
I do have worth. I am worthy. I have worth.
And I’m not sorry anymore.
Get out of my way.
Here I come.
