Clad in their golden-orange gowns
They are at a most beautiful ball
A gentle breeze moving their
And creating rustling sounds
They know the ball will end soon
And they will have to wait another year
Before they call return to this festivity
So they savour these last moments of bliss
As they sway to the mesmerising music

We need not be perfect!
Where does this idea that perfect is good
That it’s the desired goal
Why are we not comfortable with our flaws?
Perhaps it’s because not many
Successful people speak of their flaws
What we see on the outside
The perfect picture
Does not reflect what is inside
The reality is that visible or not
We all have limitations
We all have failed and cried
We all have messed up!
Perfect does not exist
And perhaps it should not
We learn from our imperfections and mistakes
They can be areas we work on
Normally, we don’t show our inadequacies
It’s just not done
What would others think?
Would they judge us?
Yet, it’s our foibles and flaws
That make us human and normal
Nobody is good at everything
That person does not exist
So, let’s be authentic
And talk about our failings and challenges sometimes
I guarantee that the sky won’t fall
And that we will be loved despite our flaws
