It is a really wonderful piece of work. Short, simple, but meaningful. I like the phrase, "imperfectly perfect". Good job.

So very true :) Yet, is that really what you see as you? I mean, all that stuff will go away, so I really doubt that you should think of yourself as that. How about a good poet? :)

Heh...ironically enough this is how I see MYSELF. Not really much I can say because the greasy-haired part is true :P (my hair doesnt like to stay soft even after I wash it like twice in one day sometimes its quite annoying)

A great emotional poem!

When I look in the mirror, I often see myself the same way.  But thinking of yourself like that is the perfect way to go insane.  You shouldn't compare yourself to others because you are unique and to quote that song "you were born this way."

Everyone has felt that way one time in their life, but you have to just be true to yourself and realize that everyone is beautiful in their own way!

I can see that you feel insecure. I really like the line "imperfectly perfect".  Hey, be yourself and enjoy it!

This is good. =) It's short, but I'm able to see the vulnerability in this. It was brought out well. Nice work!

Would you mind giving me feedback on my poem? Thanks if you do!
