I had a dream
that I woke up without acne
and that you wanted to date me
like in the movies but I'm sorry
this is not a dream and I'm sorry
that I am waking up with flaws this time
and I am sorry

I hate the word perfection, it shouldn't be a label a person holds (well, except Beyonce), vause no one is. What I love about this poem is that it encourages its audience to wholly embrace our flaws instead of rejecting them. Rejoice in our imperfections, cause that's what makes us human. Not perfectly proportioned mannequins.

I can relate to Speaker. I have on braces. I was told I look worse with braces on. He "was mad" when he told me this, but it still hurt. :(

I think braces are cute. Thank you for reading by the way. I'm glad and also anguished to know that you relate.

There is the old saying "Nobody's perfect." Be happy with what you have.

Perfection is subject to opinion. So is happiness. Thank you for reading.
