Perfect Me

What's worse than damaged self worth?

I am not proud of who I am

I love the person I will become

Want to be

Am not.


You say I am so wonderful

But there is always more

More I could be

Should be

I am not the perfect me.


I don't want you to change me

Mould me

Break me.


I want you to love me

For me.

Not for who I could be

Or will be

Or what you think I should be


There is only one perfect me.

The me I am now

Perfect in imperfection


A cliché

An original

Abnormal

Damaged

Bruised

Suffering.
