I used to think
I needed a knight in
Shining armor
To come save me
I used to think
I needed a
Brave hero
To pull me from
The fire
I never imagined
That I could
Become my own
And that I
Could choose
Whether I needed
At all
I thought I needed
Someone else
To complete me
And save me from
My own mind
I thought
I wasn't good enough
Unless I was perfect
With no flaws left
To fix
But sometimes
It's better to stay
In the fire
Not perfect
But okay with it
Not quite healed
But not really broken
Sometimes it's okay
To admit
That you don't need
Anyone else
To make you
Who you are

    Mimi, wise words from someone so young. It's true, you don't have to be perfect to be happy. Self acceptance is a very powerful tool to have. It will take you far in this life. Well done!
