Perfectly Flawed
poetry for change
by Malak Kalmoni

Beloved Flaw

“Perfection, however perfect, can annoy,

Rendering you unattainable, remote, coy,

When in reality, you are just as humanely what

Flawed as all the others who refute their faulty perfection.” (p. 55)

After having witnessed two civil wars in developing countries, Malak Kalmoni moved to Canada to provide safety and prosperity for her family. For an introvert, her experience as a university and college teacher opened her eyes to the inequality that was considered ‘taboo’ in the Middle East, at the time, where different religious and cultural affiliations were hidden in order to escape any biased or racial discrimination. She is also a veteran’s wife, which introduced her to varied backgrounds of soldiers, officers, politicians, and foreign dignitaries.

She has always felt the need to stand up for the underdog, and in her own way she has through her poetry.
