Study the flaws in perfection. Don’t use it as direction.

 

It will dictate how to act and react that’s a self inflicted attack.

 

Now when reading direction. Can you define yourself. 

 

I’ll find a different shape if every year I got a pen to outline myself.

 

It’s ultimately up to you to find your path, being lost isn’t a loss.

 

I was told to be perfect. Because perfection you are,

 

And nothing looks better than a symmetrical star.

 

With my conscious behind eyes, I’ve grown wise.

 

I’ve opened my eyes as if societies a colourful Braille,

 

I don’t want to be perfect, stagnation’s stale.

 

Out of the proof I find there’s no room for improvement.  

 

I can list per fact why perfection is limiting. 

 

It implies a firm threshold which is suffocating 

 

Because a hold around you mind might as well be a hold around your neck,

 

Irony is that if I’m perfectly wrong then you don’t even need to check.
