To Fit

Written by Jacob Ibrag

 Just stop. I don’t care about perfect. I’m a wreck

on my own and won’t be able to appreciate perfection. Not

yet at least, maybe never. No, what I want is someone broken

like me. Not because I won’t be intimidated, or maybe that’s part

of it. I want us to fit, to feel the protruding pieces align and realize

that we had to be this way in order to be together. The heartaches,

betrayals and lies we went through were all worth it because here

we are sharing this moment of realization that it all had purpose.

We’ll look back and know that nothing was wrong with us. That

the past was necessary because here we are sharing each others

space. I don’t know what perfection feels like or is, but

maybe this is it. Maybe it’s the chance for us to fit.

    We’re all looking for that ‘fit’ of which you speak. Only God is perfect. The best we can do is aspire to be like Him. He loves us in spite of our imperfections so it is now up to us to love each other in the same way.

    We achieve ‘perfection’ when we learn to love the imperfections in others. ☺

  9. You must be fit first, then, you will surely, find that someone fitting for you to love, because if you are not fixed up properly, you’ll only keep on finding those who are incomplete, and, being with someone who’s not whole, it’s just, not ideal at all!

  10. Divorced after 27 years of marriage, I have a hard time believing I could ever fit, or that anyone would want to. I’m making the best life alone.

    With broken pieces come opportunity for something new and beautiful. A beautiful poem.
