Simply Me

Daily writing prompt
What’s the trait you value most about yourself?

I embrace
cozy imperfections
and accept defects
that are simply me.

I have learned
to accept
the constant clutter
and occasional stutter
that are simply me.

I realize
perfection is a mirage
forever just several
steps away.


I still strive
for self-improvement
with winks and chuckles
bumps and blunders
along the way.

I recognize
patterns that shape
my world
but forge paths
to new destinations.

After all
quirky imperfections
frame my story
a story
worth telling.

I’m simply
being me.
