"Look into the mirror" was suggested to a fellow poet...
So began this personal vision of self, as others may seem to know it.
I'm far from perfection and in my own inspection
I've found a number of items worthy of criticising
Often times, when asleep, SNORE~I do not!
But a hearty snort will send one surely laughing on the spot!
I'm always rather cranky when I first spy dawn's light,
kicking and moaning furiously that I didn't get enough sleep last night.
I OVER-salt my food, as any true southern girl would
and I consider "fatback" a staple in my kitchen's neighborhood.
My thoughts, they never stop, and too often they intrude
when listening is what I should be doing, daydreaming may interlude.
And to drive me totally nuts, you don't have to go too far...
Just leave the a/c running when you turn off the car!
I desperately love my poetry forum, and this could be a fault too,
'cause I'd rather read poems lately, than watch t.v. with the likes of you.
We all have our unattractive traits,
This we know is fact.
But tolerance is a wonderful thing
When it's perfection that you lack.
We all are different models
Of God's original plan
And know that in this earthly life
He's made a match for each woman and man.
You are the 'perfect' mate
God knows who YOU can TOLERATE!
