I AM FLAWED

I AM FLAWED Accept me as what I am for nobody is perfect. I am not broken, I am just an imperfect person. Who isn’t? I am just like anybody else with flaws, weaknesses, imperfections that I do not hide for I do not live in illusion or acting based on other peoples’ expectations or opinions of me. I know I am flawed that I learn to laugh at my flaws and I even say “thank you, I already know that”. As far as I know, my flaws only affect me and no one else for it is beyond my character to hurt or belittle and to use or take advantage of other people. He is the One who knows my flaws more than I know them. That I don’t give a damn about what others think and say. I am not torn between my reputations based on their opinions and my character based on who I am; strengths and flaws. I cannot live in pretense, façade, lies just to please anybody. I do not wear a mask to hide my imperfections and I cannot be cracked from the negative things I hear and said about me. I neither say much nor ask too many questions for it is best to observe and listen than to compare, complain and criticize for I am no judge, as it is He who would in the end. As I said, I am flawed and one of my flaws is staying away from negativism and that includes people closed to me. Although it is harder to let go for it is really heart breaking. However, I rather stay away and remember the good things about them and the beautiful memories I had with them or I rather walk away than pretend that everything is all right. I may stay away or walk away; but I am always ready to be around when they need me and help them in any way I can rain or shine or come what may to support and assist them. 6/16/21 Writing Prompt - Flawed - Poetry Constance La France Used: PS Grammar Checker

Thanks so much, Alexis. You took my word... I was going to pen "I don't give a hoot"; but I don't give a damn sounds better..... I remember "Gone With The Wind". Have a good night.
