The thing that is really hard, and really amazing,
is giving up on being perfect
and beginning the work of becoming yourself.
Being a kid is hard
Every day, someone is judging
Or watching you
And we never seem to get over that, do we?
We try to be perfect
Whose idea was that anyhow???
Well, I say we go back to the drawing board with that idea
Because the fact is
You will only be a shadow of you
Until you are the imperfectly perfect you
you were always meant to be
and that's poetiquejustis
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
