Nobody’s Perfect

I didn’t do it perfectly

I made mistakes here, there, and there

They glare at me

These tiny pinpoints of fragility

You see, I did prepare

I wanted

To stand atop the mountain of accomplishment

Triumphant

Having done the very best that I could do

But I failed to meet my standard

And now I’m feeling blue

Can I not just revel in the beauty of that moment

And the points at which I did succeed

Must my little slips destroy the whole experience

I point them out to you, but why

To call for your agreement

To fish for reassurance that my offering was worth your precious time

This is ridiculous

Dwelling on one’s disappointment

Amplifying silly flaws

Imperfection is no crime

It’s a malady common to us all

Or is it a malady at all

Nothing, no one’s perfect

Right?
