Imperfection - Poem by meylen lau

Don't try to smile,
when our heart is aching.

Don't try to be brave,
when we are actually so afraid.

Why must you and me hide,
the true selves and the feelings inside?

Why not just confess,
that all of us are just imperfect?

Do not try to pretend to be perfect before any people,
when actually we can't achieve the total perfection!
