I Can't Change For You

You cannot ask someone to change
As a prerequisite to being with you
I have struggled a lifetime to change myself
With mixed success
Do you think I could change for you
Easier than for myself?
I am who I am.
With strengths and weaknesses.
I should try hard.
I can be motivated to be at my best.
I want that external motivation.
Someone urging me to improve myself,
Further my goals,
Succeed and prosper.
But that is encouragement,
Not requirement.
I will either change
Or I won't.
I will do the best I can
No more.
Love me for who I am now
Or don't love me at all.
