poem ~ perfection

Are you seeking perfection
as a form of connection,
To hide from the reality
that there is no protection?

Are you seeking perfection
as a sense to feel good,
Because deep down you know
you'll never be what you should?

Are you seeking perfection
as a way to escape the pain,
Not realizing that this expectation
only brings you less gain?

Are you seeking perfection
as you try to live and be free,
Yet by doing so you only
put more chains around me?

Are you seeking perfection
as a means just to cope,
Because deep down
you've lost the reason to have hope?

Are you seeking perfection
on the journey for love,
When the very nature of it
requires you to rise above?

Are you seeking perfection
instead of just being true,
Thinking if you'll try harder
someone will like you?
