I Am Perfect, and Flawed

I am perfect, and flawed.
And perfectly flawed.
I am generous
And selfish.
I am open and private.

I tell stories, and truth, and lies.
I was born a raging fire
To bare-handed parents
Who did their best to avoid blisters

Somehow I kept my spark alive

I remain ablaze in a world of water
Intent on putting out my fire 
Dylan Thomas understood

I will not go gentle into that dark night

[Tomorrow: Au Revoir]
