No Such Thing

by sschubert

Copyright ©2010 Stephanie R Schubert


There is no such thing as perfect you know
So take all those ideals and just let them go

You can’t hold onto them and have something real
You can’t stay guarded and still pretend to feel

I will sense every lie
So spare us both
And don’t even try

Perfection is a state of mind
Perfection is so hard to find

The reason is that it can only exist
In the minds eye – don’t try to resist

The truth of the notion of where perfection can be found
Keep chasing perfect and I won’t be around
Because I don’t stand a chance against perfect

G'day Steph...
A well presented message Steph. In nature there are no straight lines but nature is perfection. As humans we live by the level and the square, and yet as you wrote 'perfection is a state of mind'
Good one Steph.

Some good fodder here for thought, Steph.

Kind of puts that old cliché to rest, “But for the grace of God go I.”

None of us are really as big as our shadows might project; it is better to look into the light and see ourselves for who we really are.

Thanks for such a vivid message my friend.

is that supposed to be an warning? but without the search for perfection we would be a very mediocre race.

    It's kind of a warning - that too high of expectations can ctunt the overall growth of realtionships that are forged - for sure... thanks for the time and the read - have a GREAT day!

You're right about "Perfect is a state of mind/Perfection is so hard to find." Its like nobody is not perfect. So, thanks for writing a wonderful Poem.
