Perfect as you are

I’ve seen the beauty
In those you call ugly,
They have a uniqueness
That is quite lovely.
I’d rather see diversity
Different from the rest,
There’s nothing worse
Than being a normal mess.
It takes one to shine
Before others follow,
Flaunt your flaws
That once caused sorrow.
Decline people’s judgement
Ignore their critique,
Being somewhat different
Doesn’t make you a freak.

  2. I like perfect as you are. It reminds me of a conversation with a friend who would often calls people who were different weird. I asked her why she didnt find it weird to follow the flock. Nice work.

    When being a mess is normal, I probably am the most regular person ever.

    That said, I like to think I would say this in the mirror from time to time. It might just give strength to go on. Thank you for sharing.

    The line “there’s nothing worse than being a normal mess” will stick with me! It’s a great line. x

    This is something I’ve hit upon myself several times in my own writing. The way people follow fashion trends, try to all look alike, act the way they believe is the ‘right way.’ I was always different throughout my school years and was attacked constantly for it, making me feel miserable. But looking back now, I was probably happier than anybody else, because I was happy with who I was.
