Imperfection

Spread the love

Flawed
perhaps
I’m foible
as you term me
go ahead judge me
but peer into my heart
scrutinize with leisured gaze
and then attempt to paraphrase
Like the moon I am adorned with scars
Because imperfection is beautiful.

    Wonderful image – wonderful message! Imperfection is beautiful — and unique — and that is who we are!
    A pox on photoshop and the impossible images it creates for people to aspire to.
    Love this take on the form.

  8. Truedessa says:

    Imperfections make us who we are and we carry the scars as a reminder that we are human. Love the line about the moon.

  9. I’m gonna hold this line very close, my friend:

    “Like the moon I am adorned with scars”

  10. You really knocked this one out of the park; there are Madison Ave models, & there are the rest of us. Hurrah for our scars, as each of us wears them, earned them, proudly.

  12. I’m just adding to the chorus here, but, hey, it bears repeating: “Like the moon I am adorned with stars” is a fantastic line. An inspirational read. Thanks for sharing this poem πŸ™‚

  13. Gina says:

    Never did believe in perfection myself…but this is pretty close πŸ˜€ XXX

  14. You’ve put your finger on an important truth: physical perfection is rarely as beautiful as a face that bears its life experience on it.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Hello Vivienne,

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it πŸ™‚
      Highly appreciated, have a great week ahead.

  15. In complete agreement, Sanaa! There is more beauty in imperfect things/people. It is our flaws that make us stand out… makes us unique. Clones of perfection eventually go unnoticed. We’ve seen it before. I’m a quirky guy and I like it that way! Great etheree!

  17. Mish says:

    “Like the moon I am adorned with scars”…..my favourite line.

    A lovely shape to your etheree…I like how it dares to curl out on the second last line.
    Aha! Beauty does lie in imperfection! πŸ™‚
