Imperfectly Perfect

My imperfections
are my beauty spots
along life’s mirrored wall.

I wear their scars
externally
so you can see them all.

My shame, my guilt, my blame,
my doubt
my inner critic’s plea.

The freedom from
their sight and sound
projection’s gift to be.

I know now that
your mirrors’ truth
reflects the perfect me.

Uncomplicated
for its grace
my heart gives thanks to thee.

    Congratulations on yet another starkly honest confrontation!

    1. Ah my dear sweet friend, you have no idea how my heart shines when a friend shows love for one of my poems. Each one is a gift to me from the unknown. Thank you for taking the time to make my heart shine.
      All my love Jacqui

    1. Ah thank you so much for your compliment. Those that are courageous enough to fully open and connect with the soul certainly find it an easy reflection.
      Stay connected.
      Warm love and regards
      Jacqui
