Flawless Is My Flaw

I once lied about being me

My lies become my dreams

I can't no longer be who I wanted to be

Because the lies changed me internally

 

Because I wanted to be flawless

Because I wanted to be the strongest

Because I wanted be be smartest

Or maybe dauntless

 

It changed me forever

Long nights

No lights

But then I realized....

 

I don't had to be flawless

I just wanted to be me

And it is that imperfection that makes me flawless
