“Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “deep.” Use it any way you’d like.“
There is beauty in your imperfections,
The things that are most true,
Are filled with flaws.
Deep in the recesses,
The good lies hidden.
You stumble on your sentences,
Forget the words that you need,
But pay no heed.
You are real,
To those parading as perfection,
Pay them no heed,
For it is you and how you feel,
It is you and those you love,
Which are things that are the most real.
And if that means burnt food and breakdowns,
Know that there is strength in your salty tears,
Let the world not tell you that there is failure in your fears,
Be forgetful with all your heart,
But if it has been smashed into smithereens,
Then be yourself with every part.
