Perfectly Perfect (OctpoWriMo)-Day 6

I'm not good enough
But I'm perfectly perfect
I'm not accepted
But I'm good this way
I'll never measure up to them
But I'm as perfect as they come

My flaws are what makes me flawless
Someone told me it's perfect to be well rounded that way
There's a million things I would want to change
But then I'll be taking away pieces of me
And the last thing I want is to please the crowd
This is probably the most imperfect thing to admit out loud

I'm perfectly perfect the way that I am
Although it never feels that way
Sometimes I'm a queen
And sometimes I'm a peasant
In some ways it's better than being stuck in between
That way, I can only play for my own team

I think that's the thing that makes us perfectly perfect
Just being ourselves in all it's pain and glory
Who cares who likes it because no one really matters anyway
At least that's what I like to believe
So be perfectly perfect in all your flaws
And do whatever you want without needing a cause

    1. Thanks for the compliment. Sometimes we all need to be reminded that we're fine the way we are. I kind of wrote it as a reminder to myself.

  2. As I've gotten older I've gotten a little better at accepting myself. I doubt I ever entirely will.

  3. I'm not sure if anyone ever entirely accepts themselves but I do agree it's a little easier the older you get. It's always a struggle though.
