Life and learning to be human, not chasing after the unattainable level of perfection.

"What is life if you don't make mistakes?

What's that ideal life you want to make?

Is it the one with success to be embraced?

Or that perfect world without mistakes?"


But sure that is truly not the case,

Everyone's world seems to be all fake,

With those decorated walls they show,

Display shiny things in fancy rows.


Then they look at your hanging blank wall,

And wonder when will it take its fall.

Those pressurizing expectations,

Smothering scenes of lamentations.


Fear of your downfall or fear of life,

Trampling upon your soul in despise,

That'll leave you trembling and confused

If there is anything left to lose.


Your soul is bruised and left all alone,

Lifeless and buried beneath the stones.

A body without a soul it lives.

Is it even worthy to be saved.


I am deeply sorry for my fault,

And that I'm sorry I am not called

To be flawless and perfectly planned,

And very sorry that I'm human.
