My Picture

Etching away at my life
Trying to make
My picture turn out
as perfect
as it
can be.
But while I work
I seem to ignore
The beauty my picture
Already Stores.
And as I fix that
Last little line
I scrape out not knowing
That one perfect time.
If only I could
Step back and admire
But my hand permanently etches
Until maybe
I'll retire.

This poem is about fixing everything you see wrong about yourself without looking at the bigger picture and realizing how beautiful you already were.
