Imperfect Perfection

Post by ~~JERI~~ » Wed Jan 02, 2013 8:48 pm

My nose is quite long and my legs are quite short.
But, I’m only one of humanity’s sort.
My hair shines of blond, but, it comes from a box.
It’s thin and it’s straight. There are no curly locks.

My eyes are deep blue but I’m blinding a bit.
My nails won’t grow right, they’re weak and they split.
My toes are all crooked but all ten I have.
The older I get seems most parts of me sag.

My ears are real sharp but my memory’s short.
I bruise very easy, not cut out for sports.
I’m not quite as pretty, but I look lots like you.
And I’m not very witty but God says I’ll do.

I’m not really pleased when my mirror looks back
My imperfect visions and all that I lack.
Hand made by God to please only His eye.
Perfection I am. My worth is held high.

What a delightful poem, Jeri! I really love it. Sometimes It's good to be able to laugh at ourselves, knowing that God loves us as we are, and that we truly are of great worth to Him.
Love and blessings, Shirley

Hi Shirley, Yes, I laugh at my myself quite a bit actually. Then I grab a pen. Thanks for liking it.
God's touch to you
