Being Perfect

Being perfect

Definition: “complete in all respects, flawless”

These words I got out of the dictionary

Now if we were all perfect

We would look similar to one another

We would have the same noses, eyes, butts, thighs

No sense of humor

You get my drift

For myself now, I wanted to be perfect

I wanted to walk like other people

Have the thinking capacity like others

Have the outer beauty not the inner one

As hard as we try to be perfect

We can’t

That is OK with me

We are unique in our own way

I like being unique

I don’t have to have other people’s noses, eyes, butts, thighs—

I can have my own.
