Uncompromisingly Me

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “iron(y).” Use “iron,” use “irony,” or use both. Use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!


If I ironed out all my wrinkles
Would I be more acceptable to thee?
Strive for your version of perfection
Would that make you love me?
How can I achieve that which you want?
How am I to be your ideal mate?
The irony of it all is that I’m not
Because in this futile endeavour
To fit into a little box of your desires
I’m losing the special that makes me unique
I’m bending and shaping, and in the end breaking
To be a picture that isn’t a bit of reality
So, I am going to allow my wrinkles to re-form
For my folds to fall back into place
And embrace the magic that I am
And allow the world to send me the one
Who fits my imperfections naturally
