perfection (2)

a million pieces
beauty in flawed humanity
perfection in our very faults
that crooked half smile
 
     a million pieces
     none fit
     perfection resides not in tomorrow
     futile being good
 
          a million pieces
          tear streaked
          perfection in that fissure
          not having the answer
 
a million pieces
you are whole
perfection is your flawed beauty
you just don’t know it

About cho wan yau

Teacher by day poet/writer by night. Words have been my first love and will be my last. As a child I locked myself into the toilet devouring books which transported me to distant lands. Poetry shared penned from 2009-2010 in a titanic struggle to stay sane at Heartbreak Hotel. Please check it out on chowanyau@wordpress.com. Any comments or feedback welcome. Why not share your story with me, because we all have one, don't we?
