soul mates

Why do you keep trying to change me?  That's not the thing to do.
Instead of hoping I will change, why aren't you changing you?
I am who I am and will always be,
I may not be perfect, but I'll always be me.
I've tried my best , always have,  and made mistakes along the way
But the mistakes that I've made, make me what I am today.
So when you shake your head and blame me for things gone wrong
Look in a mirror and try to sing about your own sad song.
There's only one person I must please to hold my head up high
And that, dear one,  is only me and will be till I die.
I go to sleep each night in peace, I wake up every day.
And know by choices that I make there's just one soul to pay.
That soul is mine, I've made my peace I know just who I am
Know this, and if you care NOT for me, then I don't give a damn.
The one who made this soul of mine and cares for me the most
Is known as the Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
