Written By Sumati Varma (Grade 9)

Perfect, is that not the word?
In our society, anything other than that is unheard.
No mistakes are we allowed,
Otherwise, how will be make everyone around us proud?

Be the best version of yourself,
Even if in the process, we loose ourself.
It is not expected rather it is required,
Required to be perfect even when you are depressed, lost and tired.

Therefore, yes that is the word, perfect,
The word without which our society would be recked.

Hi, I’m Sumati Varma and I’m a 14 year old ambivert. I have a soft spot when it comes to art, especially poetry and highly respect authors. My poetry usually comes from the darker, deeper aspect of life. My thought process and writings come from people who are suffering or are in pain but can’t find the words to express themselves. So I thought maybe I can do it for them.
