The Masterpiece

A sculptor made a sculpture
As lovely as he could
And as soon as he was finished
He proclaimed that it was good
But lo was he surprised
When the sculpture rolled it’s eyes
Saying, “I’m not satisfied,
Give it a few more tries.”
The sculptor stood in shock,
“Did you just say to me?
That you don’t like the way
I created you to be?”
The sculpture sighed out loud
“Well, I don’t like my hair,
It’s plastered to my head,
and goes not here or there,
And I don’t like my skin
It’s covered with gold flecks
How can I be perfect
With all these ugly specks?”
The sculptor laughed out loud
“I know how you should be.
You look the way you do,
because you were made for me.
If your hair went here and there,
It wouldn’t look quite right,
Those sparkles on your skin
Will make you shine at night.”
The sculpture slowly smiled,
“Well, I suppose that’s true,
I just saw your other sculptures
And wasn’t sure what to do.”
The sculptor shook his head
“Not one of them is the same
They’ve all tried to change
And have only themselves to blame.
Before they crumbled and chipped
They were special just like you,
And now they fall apart
Trying to make themselves new.
Each one was unique
And displayed my creative side
But they all judged each other
And were never satisfied.
So do not follow suit
Don’t try to be like they
You were made for me
A masterpiece you’ll stay.”

    Love this, if we all remember we are the designer’s original, and one of a kind, it will put cosmetic surgery out of business, beautifully done.

  • Thank you! :)
