Blemish is Bliss

a poem by Shanthi Rexaline

Stop chasing perfection!
Perfection isn’t always cool.
A perfect veggie, a perfect fruit now-a-days
Mean only a doctored product,
Made perfect with toxic pesticides,
Chemical fertilizers and inedible preservatives-
A lesson learnt in my kitchen.
Instead be happy with those imperfect ones,
Which teach you to workaround and
Be ready for all those unpleasantness of life.
Therefore, don’t scorn the blemishes,
Be it people or things or circumstances;
They are there to make you
A better and an affable person.
Embrace the blemishes,
For blemish is bliss!
