Perfection

Perfection

A Poem by Sasha

Each move is plotted,
Every step planned.
Each flaw spotted,
Every mistake banned.

They are perfectionists,
Seeking to perfect,
Perfection.
Their intentions are,
In perfecting every small,
Tiny,
Section.

Every tiny section of life,
Of death.
They crave the best,
In every single breath.

They will not stop,
Until perfection is the law.
Or will die trying,
Even that, perfectly so.

i agree with Coyote Poetry, you don't have to be the very best, you just have to be your very best. There is a difference. and i sure like this poem, this was very intriguing work. it saddens me sometimes when some people keep up the search for perfection because in the end they will only finish empty-handed.

"They will not stop,
Until perfection is the law.
Or will die trying,
Even that, perfectly so."
well said. great work here!

I don't know. Few things are perfect in a life. I believe a person who write music. Can put the perfect words together and create excellent music. Can know perfection if a report card of sorts. I believe better to do it right and do your best. Perfection is in the eyes of the beholder. A interesting poem. Life had too much good to die to be perfect. I like this poem. Made me think.
