Although I consider myself a halfway decent poet, I wrote this poem to show I am far from a perfect man.

I Am Not a Perfect Man

I am far from a perfect man
I am flawed and I am faulty
Sometimes I do not understand
All the imperfections in me

I know I may procrastinate
Put things off a little too long
I often can’t communicate
Even admit when I am wrong

I do not like confrontation
Conflicts and fights I just avoid
Though it causes aggravation
And makes you feel a bit annoyed

I am far from responsible
Acceptance I’m lacking for sure
I’m often undependable
And perhaps a bit immature

I’m very inconsiderate
And your needs I often neglect
Acting like I don’t give a sh*t
Makes me lose all of your respect

I am not that well adjusted
Anti-social I just may be
Many times I have not trusted
My place in our society

I know I am insensitive
And do things you don’t understand
But I’m asking you to forgive
The fact I’m not a perfect man

So much of this could so easily be about me especially this verse
"I am not that well adjusted
Anti-social I just may be
Quite often I have not trusted
My place in our society"

But yeah I forgive you too, not that I think you really need to be forgiven, you rarely seem to be far behind with keeping up with the site, at least from what I see...

I'm hip to not being perfect. I've seen
a lot of those people. I didn't know you were
one of them. Man, am I disillusioned?

Trumpetman, sadly you are very disillusioned. My imperfections are probably worse than a lot of people, but not as bad as other people's. In poetry, we can be as perfect as we want to make ourselves out to be, but in reality we have to look ourselves and our imperfections in the mirror. Thanks for reading and commenting.

Dear Brother Ronnie,
No one is perfect except for our Lord.
We love you imperfections & all. We're
just as flawed as you, some of us much
more so than you, but we're still loved.
You're a very special guy in my eyes &
I know we all feel the same. I flub up
so much, it can be depressing, but I keep
going forward in Christ, & I know you are
doing that too... I forgive you anyway
though in my eyes there's no reason to!
You're a super Brother & friend!!!

Love you,
Sis, Patty :) (Truthfollower)

Ronald, a very good poem. Sometimes people expect us to be more than we are, it's nice to remind them we are only human. My own flaws are countless, but then again; Why count them?
Love is not finding the perfect woman, but loving all the imperfect things about her. (Goes both ways)

As always, you make me think and you make me feel, thank you for that.

Preacher, thanks a lot. If you keep writing them I'll keep reading them. I have a job that is either very busy or very slow. It happens to be slow right now after a straight month of being busy. Trying to catch up is the reason I have read so many posts over the last couple of days. I usually start with unanswered topics and go from there. I know it's a lousy feeling to see a goose egg next to one of your poems. Especially if you are a new member. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on this poem.

Great poem Ronnie. I'm glad you're not perfect, if we were all perfect then we all be boring. We all need flaws even though they might be bad. They make who you are.

This reminds me of a song my father, who's also very imperfect used to sing, " I'm not a perfect person. There's many things I wish I didn't do. But I continue learning. I never meant to do those things to you. I found a reason to change

Old Soul, for some reason I couldn't get the song to play, but I got the lyrics and I believe I have heard this song before. If it's the one I'm thinking of it is absolutely beautiful. Thanks for letting me know about it. It is the song I am thinking about. I just downloaded it on youtube.

Everyone has faults and no one is perfect but the fact you recognise what your faults are than you are half way to trying to better yourself.
Great piece of poetry and a big part of yourself. Thank you for sharing.

Ronnie - Perfection lies in the heart
of the beholder. I can find many things
perfect..like a flower or a poem.
We love despite our flaws..and this poem
is flawless. Great job! Love it!
Take care. God Bless.

Imperfections make us who we are. Despite the negativity of them, they shape us into success. Lovely poem.

I was going to give you a 10 but then this man you are describing is not you, at least we do not see you as that at all. You are quite the opposite in my eyes. We are all flawed but you are a wonderfully talented poet who has given so much to FFP and its members.
You may not be perfect, but you are one heck of a man.
