Perfect Lie/ You Are Loved The Way You Are - Poem by Unwritten Soul

Stand in front of the mirror
Either boys or girls, some got depression
Try to find yourself underneath the reflection
Dissect each point, seek for perfection
Dreaming of perfection, adore some corrections

Never know the word of satisfy
Already beautiful but admire to modify
Don't you know who really you are?
You are loved by the way you are

Most of us rather see what appeared outside
always forgot to evaluate what lies inside
Most of us deceived by the open eyesight
always fooled because blinded heart-sight

Perfection makes everyone affected
Perfect one is what you wanted
Perfect lie is what you invented
Perfect word only a word that human created
A real you, that what you have neglected

Dear,
Don't feel down,
if u are blessed as jasmine flower
Why must you envy of that sunflower
I know, it is big, sweet yellow, catchy for eyes to look
But, don't you know sunflower adore the way you look?
Hypnotize fragrance by cute in white, posses its own hook
So unfair to compare the different beauty you both look

Jasmine, u never be sunflower even u dressed in yellow
The fake pigment will fade away soon
Sunflower, perfumed never make u placed in jasmine row
The artificial scent will gone before noon

No need to hear anyone to drag you down
Yet thou be like a rose, beauty guarded by thorns
Thankful to have what u have now
You always loved by who you are now
It is always good to be yourself
Better than lost yourself in your own lie

In fantasy, to taste perfection, perfect lie u got
In reality, perfection is only belong to God
And...you are always loved the way you are

*Note: U are beautiful, no matter what people say...
This is for everyone that think they are not good enough
in many aspects not limited to beauty perception

    Amazing poem. One of the most motivational piece I have ever read. The third stanza depicts the reality of life wherein most people rather see what appears outside, always forget what lies inside. Liked the last.stanza, which expresses it all: Perfection, only belongs to God.10 (Report)Reply

    Beautiful poem, beauty is never only skin deep unless you let it be.
    And to compare yourself to others, is never the right thing to do.
    Personal improvement is best done in mirror.
    Who am I, how can I be better.
    Not who is she, what does she have that I do not.
    Envy can be very difficult to shake for anyone lacking in their own self confidence.

    always fooled because blinded heart-sight.... In reality, perfection is only belong to God
    And...you are always loved the way you are. I appreciate this beautiful poem. Thank you dear Soul, for posting such a gem.

    Soul, I like the way that you have interspersed nature with people. Unlike people, nature has no mirrors to look at. Nature is comfortable just the way she is. Unfortunately, most people are not. So sad that so many have such low self-esteem. Another great write! It inspired me to write:

    Standing in front
    Of the mirror
    Seeing that someone
    Long ago
    Hugged him said bye
    And cried no more

    Thank you for another strong hug, kind words and time
    My heart always feel like you are a kind fellow, and of course being you as yourself is an award for God because you are different, we all different.. We have a chance to bring ourselves to our best. Comparison between diff greats things are not necessary. Smile, be happy.. That life meant to be! :)

    Wonderful poem, Soul. As I read it a second time, I thought about the power of standing in front of a mirror. The real power has nothing to do with vanity. Done enough, it can make one accustomed to oneself, comfortable with oneself. This alone may be a step towards defeating those efforts that may attack one's self worth. A great poem, Soul.

    We were born this way, its not a way to blame it is a way to celebrate how unique we are delivered to this world. Strip all the physical entities, we will see we have something to focus on, how to live in survive in life with happiness :) Thank you so much dear, last time i offer you tea..lets try lemonade with mint this time cheers! hahahaha

    Yes Rebecca, i imagined if we only have the same face but with different barcode number on our head (to differentiate each other) will we see each other or treat them differently now? because we will ignore what we see on face/skin but their heart...I always believe that God creates different beauty for each of us, when your heart close to someone, look might be changed, a child look his/her mother beautiful than others because they are close to them..

    Nobody is perfect but we are trying to be perfect but still not so keep on trying again..If only people contented of what they/we have but its not it runs in human blood..Each and everyone of us has its own beauty that others have we just need progress to show the world that we are beautiful in our own way...

    I love your rythmic lines and words. Dear unwritten soul you may belive that everyone has his/her own intrinsic values but perfection naturally arouse the sense of jealousy in which you aspire to be granted with those sublime characteristics. satisfaction abut our possessions lead to life of monotony. perhaps jealoucy and contrasts all in all are created by god to enhance the beauty of human being. we should aquire innovative features of others by resorting to such ways although it may produce a world of tumult within our soul but such mental and emotional disorders expedite the process of growing otherwise we shoul linger forever in ordinary life (Report)Reply

    Merci,
    Loving ourselves is more reflective and mutual than loving others that not really appreciative.
    I always think that no one is better than another, because it is unfair to compare different qualities created by God :)
