#12 ( " IMPERFECTIONS " )

Imperfections, have I any

To whom does it matter

little flaws I have many

opinions said I only chatter

Maybe I don't talk right

but my speech is not impaired

The accent I may have is slight

either way I never cared

You may argue at what I do or say

disagreements I might lose

It's how I do things my way

other people wouldn't choose

Imperfections, have I any

who's to say or to decide

little flaws I have many

ashamed I'm not nor will I hide

at times I'm not so strong

though weakness I show to nobody

It's hard admitting when I'm wrong

but isn't it hard for everybody

So maybe I'm not that very smart

or know all the things you know

What I learn I keep at heart

I take it easy not to slow

Imperfections, have I any

does it concern anyone that much

little flaws I have many

Care I don't for ignorance and such

Even though when I'm sitting

my posture isn't straight

and my lazy walk isn't fitting

my stride is always great

So what if my skin is brown

or my hair isn't quite right

I may get sad but never down

my appearance to you just

another sight

      No one sin is greater than the other,how very true.I hate it when i see a big fat(obese) person put another down for smoking or drinking,I do neither,but i still see the hypocrisy.Thank you.

      Judgement will always be apart of the world, usually by fools who are so quick to open their mouths, act stupid, just to please a crowd, your options to ignore or get sucked in. Either way, can you win?

      Thanks for posting this poem, it was a good read.

      The insignifigance of others prejudice reflects assertion toward independance of ability!

      thanks for your suggestion I did not write this poem imperfections and I love it just the way she wrote it. Julia has her own style when she reads her poems, it is what makes her a great writer.
