Chasing perfection

I am chasing something impossible to find.

I am killing myself a little at a time.

I can not stop torturing myself endlessly.

Because I hate myself and wish I was never to be.

I am searching for perfection inside myself.

But I will never be able to love myself.

I appear to be broken.

Never to be fixed.

My heart is cut open.

It needs to be stitched.

I will never be the woman I want to be.

Because of how I am in reality.

I can not change myself to suit my liking.

The thoughts I give myself are so frightening.

Why couldn't I been born a perfect beauty 

Im just not meant to be beautiful.

Because I will never feel beautiful.

The picture is so amazing, but the message of this poem is more important. It's easier to be content, rather than chase perfection. So happy to see more poems from you! We missed them, chrissie! Cheers!
