Broken

No rhythm

No rhyme

Just me

And myself

Dark hands

Bright face

WIth a dim glow in the eyes

Worn out

By the challenge

Of living each day with a smile

Inside

He is broken

Outside

He is unbreakable

Inside

He is ugly

Outside

He is flawless

Inside

He is stupid

Outside

He is a valedictorian

He knows

He is broken

But he is unfazed

For beauty comes

From knowing oneself

From knowing that you aren't perfect

From knowing you are weak

From knowing you are dumb

From knowing you are human

And so is everyone else

He knows he is flawed

But those flaws

Just make him

Flawless
