The (Im)Perfect Me…!

I wanted to be perfect

and I keep striving for perfection 

Hard as I tried to be perfect, I kept discovering the imperfections

And I began to clean out the imperfect me

but hard as I tried to clean and wipe out my imperfections

I make more imperfect marks as I cleaned

Imperfect stains dotted the surfaces

And I ended up with the imperfect me again and again

Perhaps, that’s what being human is all about

We live in constant imperfections

Striving for perfection is a mere illusion

We can never be perfect

So let’s live with our perfect imperfections



In response to The Daily Prompt – Imperfections.


Peace and Love!

  1. The more we strive for perfection. The more we reduce our imperfections and the more we understand ourselves.

    We are perfect by the perfection of Christ, just as we are righteous by the righteousness of Christ.

    Perfection does not mean we don’t have imperfections, it simply means we recognise our imperfections and try to make up for it.

    Good words from you.

    Bless you.
