A MinD in MoTown

Apparently this is now the poetry corner.

Filed under: I want to be a "writer"

I hadn’t planned to post more poetry so soon, but by coincidence this morning, I picked up a notebook to use for an assignment and a piece I wrote in 2004 was on the first page.

More than five years later and I still love the words I wrote.

The cracked mirror
Constantly reflecting
Each unsatisfying inadequacy
Of every shattered soul.
They stare,
Hoping the image before them
Is somehow jaded
By their own insecurities.
They wish that the true reflection
Could be one of within,
One of beauty
And untainted glory.
But with each glance
At that fragile glass
Confidence is lost
And inner beauty is forgotten
As one of perfect imperfections
Stands before the mirror.

I love this! So honest and beautifully phrased. I’m sure every girl has felt like this at least once.

Which is exactly why I likely wrote it.

Beautiful poem.

I love when we get a little surprise from the past like opening an old notebook and finding an old poem. Love it.

Me too. It’s even better to look back on something old and still feel proud of it.

“More than five years later…”

That is the true test… and I can see why. 😉

Haha, um, thanks?

i love this one 🙂
hehe and i’m pretty sure i’ve used that line “perfect imperfections” before too

Thank you, and it’s a great line to use. So truthful. I’ve always believed someone is perfect because of their imperfections.
