Perfect

Perfect

A Poem by imagwriteine
"

If only I can be that guy.........

"
Everything possible to have in this world, he seemingly possess.
Anything that we have, we think that he owns.
The perfect person, we long to be,
upon looking at one we idolize.

Concentrate solely at the glamorous surface,
we ignored the rusty, rotten insides.
What we wish to possess they may dread,
when we think they're fearless they may fret.

Shallow as we are, to focus on the fragile shell,
yet ignored the person inside screaming for help.
Glee, we will never have,
should we only wish 'if only',
longing to be the one we idolize,
forgetting the pain they endure.

Appreciate what you have,
no matter how little they may be:
For your life will never be full,
if you only complain how it is cruel.

Our own insecurities are based on our own comparisons of what lies inside us to what we see on the surface of 'those guys.' In reality, you are right, whet we find attractive and successful may be the opposite for others. Indeed, life is what we make it and 'perfection' is up to the individual.

Another wonderful message in poetic form. Your words are deep but oh so true. Don't waste time wishing for what you don't have, make the best of what you do have. Very cool.
