Imperfectly ME

Imperfectly ME

A Poem by ♥Dancing giraffe♥

"No ones perfect." Read left to right. *if you haven't already figured that out ;)


Get a hold of yourself, you coward.                                             You’re strong. Never forget that.


Fool. Why can’t I do anything right?                                You’re human. It’s okay to make mistakes.


I’m not pretty; I’m the ugliest thing on earth.                             You are beautiful and remarkable.

Why can’t I be beautiful like them?                                                 Never let others change that.


No one loves me.                                                              God rejoices his love for you everyday. 

                                                                                            Even if you don’t believe in him.


Dumbass. That’s what I am, isn’t it? I’m so stupid!                                              You are smart.

                                                                                           Everyone learns at their own pace. 

                                                                                                             Believe in yourself.


I can’t do anything. I’m so helpless.                                   The human soul is a powerful thing. 

                                                                             You can do anything you put your mind to.


I hate myself.                                                                                      Why? You’re amazing. 

                                                                                             You have to start loving yourself, 

                                                              you are going to be with you for the rest of your life.


I’m nothing

I'm worthless                                   Remember, you are a person and that you have great wealth

I'm a nobody.                                                                               by simply being born.



I’m not good enough. Why am I the way I am?                                 People are born as individuals. 

                                                                                                       Be proud of who you are. 

                                                                                                 You are always good enough.


                                       No ones perfect.

Author's Note

♥Dancing giraffe♥
Sometimes I contradict myself. While one part of me argues how ‘stupid’ I am and ‘You’re so ugly you should jump off a cliff’ - really, everyone feels this way once in a while. It’s normal- the other part of me tells me how amazing and beautiful I am. I think some people feel this way sometimes. And it’s okay, because it means you’re human. We point out our flaws and judge ourselves and others too quickly. But heck, no ones perfect. ;)
