would this make me perfect in your eyes
conforming to your image of a box?
though I’m more round than square
I admit for years I tried
I go about altering the way I am
once I’ve changed
there will be a wizard
who wants me to change back again
intelligence isn’t in season
creativity so blase
inarticulate all the rage
through I cannot see the reason
alas I must accept who is me
look you square in the eye
is it the rise of dawn that you see
or just empty shackles???
Today the prompt at Poets United is Acceptance – do you accept yourself as the wonderful person you are???
