Dedicated to anyone who has ever been made to feel their art -- be it writing, drawing, painting, music -- is not good enough. 'Perfect' will always be subjective.

Lessons Never Learned

 

To ignore the words of others,

their ‘perfect’ point of view,

is something that is really hard

for most of us to do.

 

There’s no such thing as ‘perfect’

but still remains ‘ideal,’

a carrot that is dangled

to our fear of failure seal.

 

Not many have the confidence

to turn the other way,

to cut out all the critics,

forget the words they say.

 

Perhaps it is impossible

to manage not to feel,

but follow on that inner voice

and make yourself be ‘real’.
