perfection doesn't exist

i'm perfect
i'mperfect
imperfect

i am
surrounded by seemingly 
perfect people. 

and i have
this tendency to find
things 
about myself
that i don't 
like. 

so i try to 
hide them; 
fix them; 
change them. 

but it never makes
me 
happy. 

because then i 
find another thing that
i don't like. 
so instead i just
live with it; 
deal with it; 
and learn to love
myself.

because perfection
doesn't exist,
and imperfection
is beautiful.

    This is exactly me!!
    But this piece is so incredible, I also use to think that imperfection is beautiful and also this piece is. Well done :)

    Loved it! And in every imperfect there's an " I'm perfect " hidden which you've wonderfully depicted through first three lines. :)

    Replying- I don't really see where you're comming from, was there supposed to be a '...' in there? Either way, thank you:)

    Wow, I loved this. I used to have a series problem with trying to be perfect, and sometimes it still comes back. Thank you for this.
    And I agree, that first part was genius.
