Pefection

Perfection 

Too Thin, too Fat 
Too Tall, too Short 
Too White, too Black 
Too Rich, too Poor 

STOP! 

Always labels of perfection, 
from a vain and ignorant nation. 
Not only the halls of our schools, 
but also in our homes are the fools. 

With images from our media 
The celebrity obsession and Hysteria; 
Our moms and dads are joining in. 
From our families to our friends. 

All in the effort of perfection 
young lives are from existence ejected. 
Trying to obtain the impossible; 
When are we going to become audible. 

I am here with you and feel the pain. 
Parents riding you because you are not the same. 
You can't make friends unless you conform 
to what society says is the perfect form. 

You are Perfect, You are Beautiful. 
You are loved, you are graceful. 
You are you, you are nothing less. 
You are strong, you are blessed. 
 
Stop! 

Don't conform to the idiocracy. 
We'll create our own society, 
free of judgment, with loving affection. 
For only in unity and love is Perfection.

I would love for you to use it for a school assembly, if it just touches one kids life that would mean the world too me. All I ask is credit due and you could use it for class, or assembly, or whatever. Thank you for the honor and the nice thought!!!!
