I Am Human

I am flawless.

Not because I'm perfect;

Quite the opposite, in fact.

It is my imperfections that make me flawless:

How I sometimes forget to do the laundry,

How I often don't respond for days,

How my eyes aren't perfectly symmetrical,

How I always scratch off my nail polish.

All of these things make me who I am.

I am a lover.

I am a poet.

I am a hopeless romantic.

But most of all,

I am human,

And that is what makes me flawless.
