Perfection was created
to make us feel imperfect,
but imperfect, of course,
is the perfect thing to be.

We spend every hour of every day,
every day of every week,
trying to be different,
trying to be unique.

Our nature is to search
for answers to life's questions,
concepts we don't understand,
like "What is perfection?"

You strive to be "perfect,"
a term you don't understand.
You should be yourself
before it gets out of hand.

Surely happiness is of priority
over a word like "perfection,"
so ask yourself this,
Who looks back in your reflection?

Wow. Amazing how you state that we don't understand perfection, which is true. Actually we don't know much of nothing anymore. You cease to amaze me, three poems i have already read and it's amazing. I got some poems of my own, but my favorite one that I love out of mine is "A Tribute". it's for Robert Frost For his "Nothing Gold Can Stay" poem.
