‘Imperfection’

This poem I wrote explores the idea that none of us are perfect. . . and that’s okay!

Moon Lake.

Jazmine Trathen, Student Writer

Perfection is something 

They don’t teach us

So who are we to decide what is perfect or not 

We are human and humans make mistakes 

But also we learn and grow as we get older 

Some decisions aren’t the right ones for that time

But some are great beautiful risk worthy decisions that should be made

So who you are now isn’t who you will be in a year 

Remember don’t be scared, because fear is nothing but an illusion

Be as imperfect as you can

We are young but we aren’t always going to be

So…

Live life to the fullest, dance in the rain, sing in the shower, fall in love, change the world, cry to spilled milk, laugh with your friends.
