Poetic Meditation On Perfection


Perfection comes from a contemplative decision
From the heart enforced by a will;
Its strength of love being put on scale.
Perfection reflects not a promise
But a desire which aims for no goal;
Instead in deeds it gives its whole heart.
Stepping forward to the reality footlights,
The perfectionist does not recoil from possible mistakes;
Not withstanding his weaknesses
He becomes daring, for he is driven;
No sentimental nuances, fickle or influential voices
Will cause his soul anxious.
The perfectionist thrives in the beauty of perfections;
And he will not settle for anything less, second best
Because his life can only be defined
In the form of a magnificently crafted poem,
The work of a lifetime art which is raved by all.
With all his being, his soul, his utmost care,
He renders anything he has touched perfect.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
