This isn't perfect
I never said it was
I'm human
Please don't nitpick
At my flaws
I know they're there
No one's perfect

This isn't perfect
You may want something else
And someone else may want
What is already there
And I may want something
Entirely different
I may want something
No one else in the world wants

This is my revenge
I write for courage
Strength
Acceptance
Confidence
And to get it all out there
Even the parts
That aren't so pretty

This isn't perfect
Nothing is perfect
Not the characters
The places
The events
The author
Or the reader
Perfection is only
A matter of perspective
