Flawed Masterpiece

I have been working on my newest poetry book titled The Paradox Complex and I have been sharing pieces of poems on Twitter and Facebook. The one that has received the most positive feed back was the opening lines of this poem. This poem may even be featured elsewhere, which is why I’m sharing it here.

This poem is titled “Flawed Masterpiece” and it’s about loving and accepting someone for who they are, even when they may not love and accept themselves.

To those who know me, I tend to share a lot from a book before releasing it, this will be the only preview from this book I’m sharing prior to its release

 

You call yourself flawed, I love all of you
I love your imperfections and everything you do
You call them faults, I say you are only human
Having you in my life, I look up and say “Amen”
Though flawed, God made you to perfection
You are unique, despite your objection
You tell me your flaws are what make you weak
I’m saying your flaws are what make you unique

I see a bright shining star
You are a light shining the dark
You are perfect to me
You’re the way God made you to be
I see a flawed masterpiece

For every flaw, something about you is flawless
Even the imperfections, you possess great knowledge
To me, you are truly a masterful work of art
And despite everything, I love you for who you are
You point out so much of yourself and say “defect”
I see things about you and I respond saying “perfect”
You tell me your flaws are what make you weak
I’m saying your flaws are what make you unique

I see a bright shining star
You are a light shining the dark
You are perfect to me
You’re the way God made you to be
I see a flawed masterpiece

Though you are flawed, you are flawless
Though unsettled you still seek solace
Here I am to lift you when you want to decease
Here I am to tell you that you are a masterpiece

I see a bright shining star
You are a light shining the dark
You are perfect to me
You’re the way God made you to be
I see a flawed masterpiece

To me you are a flawed masterpiece

Welcome to my new site

Hello and welcome!

This is where I’ll be posting my writings to share with the world.

My plan is to post something weekly. At least once a month I’ll share something new. The other weeks in the month will be: reviews. previously released material, or just something random I felt sharing with everyone

Thanks and hope you enjoy
