How to Achieve Perfection

Mon, 10/26/2015 - 11:07 -- Claudan

tell me again how i fail

what is it you see in me?

Fat Ugly Stupid

yes i know those words

i know them quite well

they are my only companions

 

they are

 

i never look in the mirror

why not, you ask?

Fat Ugly Stupid

those words weigh on my soul

but i let them linger because

they are my only companions

 

they are

 

i dread my reflection

don’t you know why?

Fat Ugly Stupid

those words are my sin

but still they stay here

they are my only companions

 

are they?

 

I looked in the mirror today

do you know what I saw?

Fat Ugly Stupid

for a moment longer they stayed

but I let them go

because I was wrong about them

 

they aren’t

 

they aren’t my companions

do you know why?

fat ugly stupid

no longer apply to me

I am imperfect, yes

but in that I am perfection

Me
