One simple word.

One simple word that can destroy someone.

We search for perfection within ourselves.

We strive to be someone’s perfection.

We want to be perfect to everyone.

But what is perfect?

It’s a word that we use to tear ourselves down and rise others up.

We strive to be something that doesn’t exist

Which puts us at a dead end road of self hatred.

It’s the endless insecurities we find in ourselves.

We count our calories

Our goal is to be prettier than the next

To have what others might not have

To be wearing the most expensive brands, to feel some sort of power

To drown our sorrows in a mask

Perfection simply doesn’t exist

Someone may be beautiful.

They may have everything you’ve ever wanted

That doesn’t mean what’s going on behind closed doors, is perfect

We become so numb to our emotions that we run off the idea of being perfect on the outside

Not wanting to fix the damage within ourselves.

As long as you wear the right thing and look the right way, nothing else matters

Until the tornado of depression hits

Until the hurricane of anxiety tears everything apart

Until the silent voices in your head ring out like a bell

It’s all fun and games until we become suicidal

Young girls believe they aren’t good enough because of the quality of what the eye sees.

We tend to push away people because they aren’t good enough to fit your standard.

Screw your standards

We all came into this world the same way

Not knowing how to do anything

We all grew

We learned

So what makes you better than someone else?

This world is bruised with the damaged idea of perfection

Strive to love one another

But love yourself first

Because at the end of the day

Perfection is an imagination
