Perfect Imperfections

Perfect Imperfections

A Poem by Miranda Olsen

To my parents

Every child is not perfect, everyone has flaws
So when they're down, go pick them up-no matter how soft the fall

Your child isn't a miniature of you, so don't expect them to be
Let them choose what to like and dislike, no matter how pointless it seems

You brought your child into this world, but you can't take them back
And all the knowledge you have inside is all the knowledge they lack

Your child will learn the most from you, this fact is set in stone
So appreciate your child for who they are, and not for what they've done.

Miranda Olsen
Too much pressure it put onto children. Let them be. Let them live.
