Perfection

When I was thirty, I didn’t know

That perfection was a state

Not required for perfect joy.

I did not know my worth,

But weighed it out in praise and promises.

At twenty, I thought

Marriage was forever and fixed,

That it grew in the utter absence

Of the soil and sun of love.

At ten, my toolbox contained one thing:

A road map for escape.

Now, I can keep my space clear

Love you without

Listing your faults,

Let you walk your own road.

I can love myself

No matter what kind of mood

You’re in.

I can deal with criticism

Failure

And praise;

I can embrace my flawed self

And actually look long

Into my own eyes.

At fifty, I am finally ready

To be twelve.

    Oh, this moves to the top of my list of my favorite poems of yours. I especially like:

    I can love myself
    No matter what kind of mood
    You’re in.

    I always find it bothersome when someone wants to “fix” my mood. Mostly they need to just live their own life and let me work through whatever is happening. I need to love them enough to do that for them, too. Much to think about in your poem…as always. hugs, pat

    Dear Pat,
    Thank you as always for the lovely energy of your participation in my site.
    Aries that I am, I’ll be fifty soon, and I embrace the wisdom that the years have brought me. Hmmm, that’s too passive–the wisdom I have dug from the dirt of my life is more like it.
    Soon, I’ll be a crone! Much food for poetry in that, I expect.
    Is all well with you?
    Much love,
    Alix
