One Single Impression: Lopsided


He was lopsided
born that way long on left
mama loved him still
Lopsided through life
boys teased him perpetually
mama loved him still
Loppy he was called
girls pestered him for viewing
mama understood
Marriage on the rocks
mama's boy wed seven years
longer ear passe
Mama took him back

Imperfection is chasing me around today telling me it only makes things more beautiful. Glad that his mother could see that.

Those who can see beauty through imperfection are the ones with the purest heart! Lovely set :)

Great words. Perfection is a media image, from saints with feet of clay, to plastic supermodels. If we realised that we'd see more beauty in imperfection. We all have it.
