"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss


The world isn't my oyster
It is theirs.
They-
They who expect me to be
Perfect
~
One mistake
I am judged
Leaving me feeling worn
And beaten
Like a pair
Of your favorite shoes
~
I do not believe in perfection
Flaws
Reside in everyone
Everything
~
But they-
They who
Judge
They who expect perfection
I cannot escape their clutches


The author's comments:
Every day, there is a struggle for perfection. But there is no such thing. My hope is that you, the reader, are able to understand where this poem is coming from. But even if perfection does not exist, there is true perfection, and that is you.
