\"I\'m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can\'t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don\'t deserve me at my best.\"
— Marilyn Monroe

Imagination is more important than knowledge...
Albert Einstein

I am not perfect, neither are you
We make mistakes, that’s what humans do
We’re not always right, and we’re not always wrong
But we never let down our egos.
Because we want to look strong
We put on a look of strength
…a suit of armor
…an invisible shield
We show people who we are through our words,
But not always how we feel
We want to make sense of the things in this world,
To know that everything will be ok,
We want all our wishes to come true…in a fantastic way
Our dreams our ours,
Our thoughts are shared
We put looks on our faces, sometimes fake, to show that we care
We all have impressionable minds,
We follow the trends of the times
We’re easily influenced by society
They try to change our personalities

Perfection is unrealistic,
Perfection does not exist
Perfection is a figment of our imaginations,
Perfection exceeds our explanation

I am not perfect, neither are you
We make mistakes, that’s what humans do

The author's comments:
I wrote this piece because I want to show the things that we sometimes try to hide, what society tries to do to us, and we do as a barrier.
