Flaw Covering

 

I was always self conscious of my flaw,
embarrassed that it was part of me:
unique,
uneven,
unconventional.

I covered my flaw over in
a thick layer of carpet.

I was gob-smacked to discover
that some of my friends were
secretly really jealous of my flaw and
wished they’d been born with one:
unique,
uneven,
unconventional.

Nowadays I’m at peace with my flaw,
just as it is,
part of the real me and the person I’m becoming.
