Tell me what your dreams were
when you were younger: Fairytales and perfect endings, I suppose.
Did it all come to play? Did you find your fairy godmother or does she exist only in Disney’s world?
Did you find your Prince charming or is he lost in the wild without a compass? Are there even Prince charmings anymore or just charming villains?

Tell me what your dreams were when you grew older: Love and money, I suppose.
Did it all come to play? Did you find the one? How many times did your heart break? How does it feel to realize that love could be a tricky salesperson? How many trickles of tears watered your pillows only to vaporize into thin air?
Did you get that dream job? Are you in the place your mind originally designed? How does it feel knowing adulthood is a crazy up-and-down scale?

Tell me what your dreams are now: Taking life one step at a time, I guess. You now realize that life loves to play pranks— a lot of times, very unfunny ones. Sometimes, dreams die regardless of how much effort you put in to keep them alive. Maybe it’s so to remind us that we are imperfect and to teach us that life isn’t a fairytale. Maybe it’s so to teach us that sometimes, imperfection could lead us to perfection. Or maybe we are just perfectly imperfect beings craving for perfection someday.

About Perfectly Imperfect

Perfectly Imperfect is a spoken word poem that talks about how life is full of surprises and how things don’t always go as planned either because of wrong choices or simply because life isn’t just having it. It also shows that sometimes, in order to win, failure is necessary. Because failure and pain will teach you lessons you’ll remember when you eventually win. In all of this, we ought to breathe and take one step at a time as we learn from life’s lessons. It’s okay to fail but what isn’t: is not learning from it.

Such a great poem, it is true in life things don’t always go to plan or throws something horrible into the mix. But this is what makes us stronger in ourselves

What a beautiful poem to listen. All the things we learn when things don’t happen how we expect them to be.


Thank you so much.


Loved this poem! And wow, never thought about the charming villians concept… But yeah, I suppose there’s quite a few of these in the world!

Glad you loved it, Tanya. Thank you.


very nice poem, and the contents are really something to ponder about. your right life isn’t always a yes, and we always have to accept that part of our everyday is also a No.:)

Life is awesome coz it isn’t perfect, then there are lots of room for us to be creative and design it that would fit us. If life is perfect then it get stagnant. Boring.


So true.


True. Don’t search for perfect because we will learn to love those imperfections someday.

Perfection is an illusion created by our mind. I really loved the poem. It touched my heart and made me a little sad as it reminded me all perfect things I wanted in my life and it never happened 😉


Awwwn… Glad you loved it, Mayuri. I’m sorry it made you a little sad. Don’t worry though, it’s going to be fine. Believe that! 😉

Thats a beautiful post. Perfection is really over minds illusion. Nothing can be perfect we have to accept and live accordingly

Thanks so much, Khushboo.


It’s true life is full of many surprises. You never know what hides behind each turn. It’s about tackling it all head on and getting through each hurdle as it comes.


Very true, Melanie

Absolutely agree with you JM.

I have had my share of failures in life and it has made me stronger and wiser. Although I admit that my life isn’t still perfect (I know it won’t ever because perfection belongs only to God), I have learned to cope and I am thankful for everything I have been blessed with.


Way to go, sis. You’re an inspiration.

Beautiful! Many believe without failure there can not be success. With all the ups and downs I’ve experienced I tend to believe they are right.

Beautiful poem! You do have to go through failures to reach success. I think everyone is perfectly imperfect!
