I don't care about your designer jeans
Your movie scenes
Your photo shopped face
Your Ralph Lauren dress

You always look like a masterpiece
Like you stepped out of a fashion magazine
Like you have no flaws
Oh so divine (Just kidding!)

Life in glamour is never what it seems
Those cameras can get quite annoying
Nothing is secret in the life in glamour
Your life is on display for the world to see
Real love is like a distant memory
Fake like Barbie
Could you handle a life of picture-perfect imagery?

Imperfection is what we do best
It makes us unique in different ways
What is perfect, anyway?
I say, "To hell with it," let's do our own thing

Life in glamour is never what it seems
Those cameras can get quite annoying
Nothing is secret in the life in glamour
Your life is on display for the world to see
Real love is like a distant memory
Fake like Barbie
Could you handle a life of picture-perfect imagery?

Perfection is a lie told by society
A word to make the 'imperfect' seem small
Forget perfection, strive for imperfection
Because on Earth, defects are divine


The author's comments:
I wrote this because I'm so tired of people saying, "He/She's so perfect!" "You're not perfect enough," "Perfection is what you want to look like," or things of that nature. I love being imperfect, because that's just how I am! Another side to it is the glamours life of a famous person. We tend to see people who are famous as 'picture perfect' when they're not. They're like us non-famous. Imperfect in all the right ways!
