Authentic self

Who is perfect?

Not me and nor you.

Not your neighbors.

Nor anyone who breathes the same air as us all.

What is perfect?

Is it pretending you dont make mistakes.

Or is it being accountable for your own doings.

How can one be perfect?

Does one follow others who think their right.

Or is it following your heart no matter who is against you.


If we dont speak up for what we believe in how can we say we did it right.

If we crumble because other's think we are wrong, How does that make them right.

who is perfect?

Who is right?

Who holds the power to belittle any other human being?

Absolutely no body.

No body is right and no body is wrong.

No body is perfect.

Mistakes are supposed to be made so we learn to grow.

But many many soul's need to learn to let go.

sniddy remarks spark nothing but the same attention one has complained about.

How is that right?

How that wrong?

No body's perfect.

We all have our demon's.

We all speak to god.

Monkey see ' monkey do.

I am not perfect.

Neither are you.


◄ You pair are both great :-)

"Who holds the power to belittle any other human being?"
Of course .. nobody has that power. Dearest Poetess Lysa .. your poem is touching humankind hearts .. that we're .. and should feel .. we're equal .. there's no doubt.

Thank you for taking the time to read.

Each to their own I say..One's soul only knows of the direction one should go. Some are eager to get to their destination, while other's are enjoying the journey more than where they plan to land.
The wind that lifts me is unique for it can take me place's not everyone is willing to go.

Clearly, a heartfelt piece and it contains much to consider carefully.
But all things surely have a guiding power and control, human or
otherwise, that we have to place at our service along the way.
You can go with the wind but which way do you want it to send you? You can also go against the wind if it keeps you from where you
wish to be and still reach your port of call. Sailing close to the wind -
like many old adages - has a meaning in reality that is readily
referenced to life's various demands and predicaments, not least
in creative endeavours.

Be who you want to be.

You are the only you... Think about that for a moment!


Love who you are.

Love attracts Love. This is an immutable spirit law
