If I could be perfect,
Would someone listen?
If I could be perfect,
Would my tears still glisten?

If I could be perfect,
Would hope light the way?
If I could be perfect,
Would that hope save the day?

If I could be perfect,
Would I be alright?
If I could be perfect,
Would I feel delight?

If I could be perfect,
Would it be cheesy?
If I could be perfect,
Would I still be perfectly me?


The author's comments:

This is dedicated to all of us in our moments of self doubt, and when we just want to be 'more like her' or 'as good as him'. This is a poem reminding others that we are perfectly imperfect, and a few mistakes remind us we're human - and that's a beautiful, wonderful thing.
