    "PERFECTION" #13MinutesPoetry

    Perfection is overrated.
    "The best works take time to be perfect",  they'd say.
    What if I don't want to be perfect?
    No what ifs.

    I can't be perfect.
    I don't want to be the girl who seems to have it all under control.
    I don't want to be the girl with the hottest boyfriend, the latest shoes, bags and clothes and who drives luxury convertibles.

    I don't want to be the slay queen they think I am.
    I want to be the girl with the messy bun.
    Vintage clothes. Chapped nails. No makeup and glasses girl.

    I want to have the Imperfect boyfriend so I won't be disappointed when he breaks my heart.
    I want to be the girl without a silver spoon
    The girl who no one notices but has a lot up her sleeves.
    That's who I want to be. 

    Just because perfection is overrated.
    We're not meant to be perfect.
    We're meant to be whole.
