Imperfections and Rejections


The imperfections

In me

Are sometimes

All I see

A complete

Blurry-eyed mess

Hidden in

Deep distress

Negative world


Leave no room

For exceptions

Always trying

To live up to a standard

In a life

Where most are slandered

Wishing to be

Fully accepted

When most of the time

I’m completely rejected

I really don’t want

To play these games

Which eventually drive

Everyone insane

I just want to be

Simple old me

A girl who is determined

To just be free

  1. Lovely, and a thing we should all be. Not constricted by what the world says we should be, but what we know in our heart we should be.

  8. I truly believe that this is our highest calling, to become fully ourselves without the regret of too much compromise and rejection. Be who you are! You are already worthy!!
