Perfection is Deception


You cannot acquire perfection,
For it is unattainable.

You cannot rely on preconception,
For it is unsustainable.

See, if there was perfection,
We'd have nothing to strive for.

If no effort was to be made,
What would we be alive for?

Perfection is just unrealistic,
All a figment of imagination.

It is just an ultimate goal,
Your while life's concentration.

But, while there's no such thing as perfect,
And it may all be a lie.

There's no saying it's not worth it,
It doesn't hurt to try.

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
