Written by Maggie Watson
I have no desire to wear expensive threads on my skin.
For they would only mask the wounds.
I carry within.
Instead I choose imperfection in celebration of my flaws.
Perfection is merely an illusion designed to gain applause.

Love this poem – short, sweet & so powerful. It’s hard to do but learning to embrace wounds and flaws and do so without shame or embarrassment is so important and well worth working at. x
Reminds me of the Japanese spiritual tradition of Wabi Sabi. Thank you.
Fantastic poem, Maggie!
So so good! 👏
