Nobody’s perfect

No one is

100 percent healthy.

We all have our issues,

our quirks,

That can drive people crazy

or make them happy.

Hopefully, in time

we learn to live with it all –

the nuttiness

the funniness

the craziness

the tenderness.

 

After all,

None of us is without fault

despite our best intentions or

a view of ourselves not

totally based in reality

(“you wish you were . . . but you’re not”)
 

That’s the beauty,

the frustration

of being human.

 

Yet each one is unique,

Each one has a purpose.

 

So we might as well

try to get along.
