Imperfect (Flawless)

"I woke up like this,"
My favorite singer said.
"I woke up like this,"
The words ring in my head.
What makes me flawless?
What makes me perfect?

I work hard, I play hard,
but always remain studious.
Flawless is overrated,
isn't that obvious?
Being flawless means pulling the fake card,
and being fake is always dubious.
I try to stay real for a while,
and real never goes out of style.

"I woke up like this,"
My favorite model said.
"I woke up like this,"
The words ring in my head.
What makes me flawless?
The strange path that I've been led.

Try being true, try being you,
I keep the mantra in my mind.
Whenever I feel sad or down,
I just try to be kind.
I focus on the good, never the bad,
and that has to be worth something.
What makes me flawless you ask.
Absolutely nothing. 

"I woke up like this,"
My favorite dancer said.
"I woke up like this,"
The words ring in my head.
What makes me flawless?
I keep a big heart,
and fill it with kindness.

Keep it flawless, keep it perfect.
Make it something it can never be.
I say personality over beauty,
but that's just me,
and so many others too.
It's something I always knew.
Beauty can be deceiving,
but my personality is always true.

"I woke up like this,"
My favorite singer said.
"I woke up like this."
The words ring in my head.
What makes me flawless?
What makes me perfect?
Imperfection makes me perfect.
Flaws make me flawless.
