"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.

***

OH!
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.

For someone
You are the 'perfect' mate
and
God knows who YOU can TOLERATE!

You packed a lot of introspection in this one, January!

I liked it a lot.

Not an easy thing to do, I take my hat off to ya!

Thanks, Corinne.

With all the recent posts about "perfection" and "what we want in a mate"...I thought appropriate to address the question, "What do you see in the mirror".  Someone pointed out to a fellow poet in here that "she" perhaps was not so perfect herself.  None of us are.  I was kinda hoping others in here would fess up to the imperfections that makes EACH OF US so unique, and helps the world go round.

Glad you enjoyed the effort.

This is so true, I was just telling a friend of mine that she needs to take a look at herself, and then she shall find the answer to why she always end up with losers, I told her that she is the magnet and there is a reason why she is attracting these "no good" men. This is so funny, I need to print this out for her. Thanks for the inspiration January Flowers

LOL - wonderful! Sometimes it can be really hard to be honest with oneself...I guess the important thing for me is to acknowledge the good things about me while I work on some of the not-so-good.

Great work!

Mystery~ interesting is your reply to me...because I always believed in the "opposites attract" theory.  Glad you liked my wording in this one.

Severn~ that's what I like to see, laughing at imperfection!  HAHAHA!  Flattered that you enjoyed.

Somebody once told me, "What you tolerate controls you!"  I left my wife the next day...LOL  Still, perfection is not a quality I'd ever seek in any individual nor would want sought in me.  I don't snore - but I sure do love that salt, though.
Cute poem with a strong message.

No one is perfect.....it's only a matter of finding someone who's "perfect" for us
