Within Imperfect

A poem and photo by Molly Hogan: 




If you forever seek perfect, 

you may instead discover a recipe 

for dissatisfaction--a price 

too high to remit. 


But within imperfect is a permit 

to take risks, to light a fire 

of creativity, to be bold and fierce. 


When you embrace imperfect, 

you set yourself free.
