Imperfect

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.
