Hidden In Shame

I’ve hidden in shame for years
and I wonder
have you too?
So much time wasted
chasing something
that wasn’t real.
So much time wasted
hiding myself.
Sought-after perfection
kept me in the dark
but for once in my life
I see the light.
We’re not meant
to be perfect.
We’re not meant
to judge.
We’re only meant
to be our best self.
So I no longer hide
all the pieces
that make me real.
This is me
I’m not perfect
but I wasn’t meant to be.
