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.

A little reply (excuse my lack of talent):

I had a dream
that you woke up thinking
screw it
and you realized that you are good enough
and you realized that I've been waiting for you
all this time
and I hope
that dream comes true.

You may not be someone's IDEAL, but you're always "good enough" - and especially: you're better than you believe you are. :hug:
