Embracing Flaws

December 30, 2011
Everywhere I look
I see Beautiful
Beautiful people
Beautiful places

I look at the mirror
I see Flaws
Flaws with my appearance
Flaws I can't hide

Does everyone else
Simply not have Flaws?
Or have they perfected
A way to hide their own?

I can't be the only one
With Flaws to hide
Certainly I'm not alone
Am I?

I look around again
Maybe Beautiful has Flaws
Maybe Beautiful
Doesn't mean Perfection

I look at the mirror again
I see Flaws
But beneath those Flaws
Beautiful is hiding there

I'm done trying
To please the mirror
Embracing my Flaws
Leads me to find Beautiful
