Perfectionism



Striving for perfection
Better to desire divinity
Arrogance begets the ambition

Will judging harshly bring improvement?
Determined and driven...
Into self defeat

Fighting in fear
Inferiority and mediocrity
Arrogance is inspired by insecurity

Is there so little faith
In abilities to excel
That I should abuse?

see..... free
in the sea
what we're meant to be;
ice [though]
is not perfection
[really]
always we
slip and fall
short
