We waste so much time in our lives trying to tidy up what doesn’t look right about ourselves to the outside world. Whether it be our clothes, our appearance or our emotions, we all cling a little too tightly to other people’s idea of perfection. My inner leadership journey is teaching me to be with the mess. To smile at it. To stay. We are at our most compelling when we stop trying to gloss over what’s raw and real after all.
If you enjoy my filmed poetry I would be delighted if you would subscribe to my YouTube channel. Apparently when I have 100 followers I am eligible to have my own url which would be fantastic!
Those who always look their best
Work hard to hide their human
For all of us live with some mess
When closer in we’re zooming
Our lipstick pouts hide fears and doubts
Our yolo shots too perfect
Acceptance is what it’s about
We’re lovable and worth it
To swallow stuff does not mean tough
To keep it in’s not coping
Don’t coat your shit with flounce and fluff
Or distance it by joking
For life is not some flawless test
When we are real, we’re blooming
So yay to chaos and to mess
And yay to being human!
