Scribblings and scrawls of a hopeless romantic soul



Judge Me Not


Judge Me Not

come clean, wash my dirt off
take away my years of mistake
if you’re faultless, come bathe me
rinse away the stains of my past
otherwise, steer clear—
do not try to label who I am
for you can only cast the stone
if your soul’s unflawed and sound

A Free Verse

I am made entirely of flaws
Of calloused palms and scraped knees
Jaded by years of mistakes
Failed struggles—a catastrophe
But behind every flaw is a beauty
Behind calloused palms is a talent
A scraped knee from wildly running kites
Mistakes from trying a thousand times
Behind every struggle is a lesson learned
A catastrophe stitched with excellence
I am made entirely of flaws
An imperfection held with pride
