Perfection

I will never be
Totally happy
There will always be
A little sadness
Deep inside
Where few people see

I will never be
Totally secure
I’ll always have
Some part that wishes
I was taller
Or thinner
And prettier

I will never be
The demure
The quiet and polite
I’m loud and crass
Even though
I can be a lady
I’d rather be
One of the guys

I will never have
My shit
100% together
Because to be honest
I deal with cluster fucks
Better than simple
For the most part anyway

And when
Catastrophe does break me
It won’t be quiet
Or pretty
No
When I meltdown
I do it all the way
And then
I pull myself together
A piece at a time

You see I’m not perfect
I’m just me
And for anyone who matters
That’s enough
