The Perfect Cup – A Poem

Mug

The Perfect Cup

It is time for me to see the flaws of myself

and stop being alarmed

It is time for me to halt my drive for perfection

and to accept my blemishes

It is time for me to receive slowly evolving growth

the kind that comes in My* God’s own good time

and pays no heed to my panicky pushing

It is time for me to embrace my humanness

to love my incompleteness

It is time for me to cherish the unwanted

to welcome the unknown

to treasure the unfulfilled

If I wait to be perfect before I love myself

I will always be unsatisfied and ungrateful

If I wait until all the flaws, chips, and cracks disappear

I will be the cup that stands on the shelf

and is never used
