Perfectly Imperfect!

I am not perfect and nor are you,
I have fallen and so have you,
I have made my mistakes and so have you.
I have my weaknesses and so do you.

You may not have had the same experiences as mine.
Yet we have had our shares for rises and falls.

The point is: neither are you leading the same life, neither am I?

Then why do you mock me when I try to get up?
Why do you judge me when I try to lead my life?
Why do you pull me down each time I try to rise?

I do not want you to help me,
Nor do I want you to sympathize,
I just want to you let me lead,
The remaining life I have.

Let me rise above my imperfections,
Let me soar above my past,
Let me walk with the head held high,,
And let the chapters of my life fly by.

I do not want to be perfect,
I cannot be perfect,
I am perfectly imperfect.

That’s me… That’s who I am
Still growing, still learning, still living.

Priests of cave temple go to sleep. Street urchins drink the thinner, eat nail polish, crushed lizard for a kick and then go without food for three days. The valley burns. Of what consequence? Sting of truth overreaches. Another committed
