Poetry Week #1: Flaws

Posted on

Hey there my loyal subjects! Let me explain something. A CLASS assignment is to post a weekly poem on my blog. Don’t be alarmed when you see these poems and you don’t see the assignment from the actual SBC. With that settled. . .

I have so many flaws

Too many to count

Lack of patience, defiant, controlling

But is it a mistake-

no, I make no mistakes

Is it so wrong

To be responsible?

On a boy it’s desired

He’s called a born leader

But on me it’s annoying

On me it’s a flaw

I have so many flaws

Too many to count

But what if they’re wrong?

What if I’m destined to be

An executive, president, leader?

We’ve come so far

Since the beginning of women’s rights

But if the problem were fixed

Why doesn’t my mother make

The same money as my father?

Why is it unfit

for a girl to be in charge?

For me to ba in the lead

Not to bring up the rear

But this poem is not

To support feminism

To bash sexism

This poem is for me

To explain all of my flaws

I have so many flaws

Too many to count

Lack of patience, defiant, controlling

They’re considered my flaws

But they’re wonderful

And I wouldn’t change

Even if I could

Because my flaws are not flaws

So long as I believe

That I would make

A great executive, president, leader

 


One thought on “Poetry Week #1: Flaws

  1. I felt the same about having flaws and sometimes I just wish that sometimes the flaws were not there but also sometimes I like the flaws I have so I felt right with you during the poem and I thought you did a good job and I really liked your poem because it connects with me a little bit and even the poem was powerful and I really liked it so GOOD
