Being Perfect

Filed under: Uncategorized — migueltio @ 5:34 pm

He was brilliant

always achieving

scoring high

making the grade

honors

awards

measuring his self worth

from all these great things

feeling like a failure

when results were not

as successful.

 

She was amazing

always breaking through

ahead of the pack

a step above the rest

accolades

nominations

she enjoyed the limelight

around her peers

feeling worthless

when results were not

as successful.

 

No one is perfect

in the way we think of

or believe

that perfect is.

 

No one can always

be on top

everyday

every minute.

 

What everyone needs

to see or to know

is that they are perfect

as themselves

no matter the grade

no matter the placement

no matter the score

when they try THEIR BEST

THEY ARE PERFECT

even when the results are not

as successful.

~Miguel

  1. Lacking perfection is NOT failure, it is merely the road to learning … a road we must all travel!!

    • So true Marvin! We are created perfect in His image, not our own material perception.
