A Poem by GlamGirl

Nobody's perfect


You see,

I’ve got these flaws.

I ain’t so perfect.


I’m a wounded soldier at heart.

I’ve been through countless battles,

That tear me apart.


I don’t think I’m beautiful.

The other girls at school look better.

I couldn’t care less about this new jacket,

Or that new sweater.


I’m not that smart,

But I try to trudge through.

My best classes are gym and art,

Even though I may seem smarter than you.



I’m morphed, tattered,

Ripped apart with razor claws.

‘Cause you see,

I’ve got these flaws.

Chipper up, panda. Everyone has their flaws. So the only thing you can do is add your note, cheerful or mournful, to the melody of the choir we call life ;)

You are very much right, we all can relate to this feeling that you've described so well. I really liked how that last stanza speaks for the first stanza, and then ties it all together with the title. Great job, I loved the write!

Sometime competition make us not want to be part of the game. I like being on the sidelines. Just trying to be me was hard enough. I like the way you described yourself and the very good ending. A excellent poem.
