Take time to know me…
Take time to know me, and you will see
That I am nothing like what you have heard spoken of me.
Give me a chance, and I will prove to you
That although I am not perfect, I have a heart that is pure and true.
Take time to know me; just give it a try.
You will see that we are not that much different, you and I.
I make mistakes, don’t you?
But if you judge me by mine, expect that you will be judged by yours too.
Take time to know me; you have nothing to fear.
Unless you wish to hang on to what you have been told by your peers.
Just for a minute put yourself in my shoes.
How would you feel if someone was going by the rumors they have heard about you?
Take time to know me; what have you got to lose,
Besides the so called friends who have got you confused?
I am not asking you to choose between me and them,
And if they really care about you, they will always be your friends.
Take time to know me is all I ask,
No great feat or extraordinary task.
Then if you don’t like me,
It will be because of what you have seen and heard for yourself
And not because of what you have been told by someone else.
