Once upon a time, there was a girl
Who wished more than anything else
That people would think she was beautiful.
In her eyes, however, she was covered
In little imperfections.
In an attempt to make herself beautiful,
She tried to cut these imperfections away.
It would work, for a short time, but then
Under the places she’d cut, she would find
More little imperfections.
So, she cut away again.
Day by day, she removed every piece of her
That she thought was imperfect.
And then one day, she didn’t wake up;
She was gone.
She removed all her imperfections…
And now that she was gone…
She had gotten her wish.
After all, nothing is perfect.
