Perfectly Imperfect

You want me to be quiet

Be still

Be tamed

I will not

My voice is loud

Unapologetic

At times shaky

But never silenced

You want me to be dull

Be ordinary

Be normal

I will not

My personality is loud

Resounding

At times quirky

But always true

You want me to be fixed

Be anchored

Be manipulated

I will not

I am broken

Resilient

At times chaotic

But perfectly imperfect

Washington Native. I am an adventurer trapped in a broken shell. I love deep and loud. My pain and happiness comes out on paper. Enjoy.
