Imperfect, But Getting By Okay


Seconds, hours, so many days
Stagnant space forms an outline
misguided and imperfect
but nothing is perfect
A painting so beautiful to bring tears
treasured among hundreds
it only takes an embarrassing scratch to put it to shambles
A letter constructed to the key
touching to the heart
but all it takes for it to be under-appreciated
is a simple flaw of a slow hand
The world is imperfect
no more needs to be said
You can't perfect the world
if you refuse to better yourself
We can't change the world
if we can't change ourselves for the better
We let our pasts get in the way
look at the person on the podium
the prime example
Look at us today
we're not perfect
but we're still getting by okay
We're united, at least for once
We're united
Lets not allow anything to dictate
the stagnant outline from changing
into a dividing line
We've come too far
to revert back
We're way too strong now
to fall now
