Awful Flaw - Poem by Vasco M. Resendes

The awful flaw is there a law!
What is the law? Of the flaw.
We all have flaws
Does the flaw - have us!
Does it have zest?
And no sense.
Zest and sense
The sense to love could be a flaw.
The zest to lust - it is a flaw! !
Perfect we’re not! Who is to say?
If yours or mine’s is worse or better!
Flaws-we got ‘em.
Some say - admit to your flaws your faults!
The facts are - it’s easier said then done.
Some wonder - why they do the things they do
-or say!
Some have reasons why they do the things they do!
Just remember there isn’t a perfect diamond.

    Apart from too much punctuation in this, it's quite a good poem, or could be. loose a lot of the comma's exclamation marks, write it as if speaking it, with every pause a new line and it will work much better for you and the reader. I agree though that the real thing has Flaws for sure and this world is obsessed about perfecting the already perfectly flawed individual call human. A thought provoker. Smiling at you, Tai (Report)Reply
