#poem : be true to yourself

Do not give me only perfect

For there is beauty in what lacks

The things that are most true

Are filled with flaws

Covered in cracks

So stumble on your sentences

Forget the words you need

To those parading as perfection

I must say: pay them no need

For it is you and your surroundings

It is you and how you feel

It is you and those you love

Which are the things that are most real

And if that means burnt toast and breakdown

Know there is strength in salty tears

Which says: “I will not let the world tell me there’s a failure in my fears”

So be afraid and be forgetful

Just be with all your heart

And if it happens that it’s broken

Then be yourself with every part
