The Struggle of Perfection is a Lie

Look into my eyes.

I want you to see, sweet angel,

That it's okay,

Not to be okay.


I know you are sad,


I am too.


I want you to smile,

Because you are perfect.

With all of your flaws.


Don't let their words hurt you.

They are afraid of themselves.

Afraid to be themselves.


It may be hard today,

But it gets better.

Always rememeber.


You are beautiful.

You are strong.

You can do it.
