Flawed Perfection

A word, a standard, a common goal, a curse, a blessing, an idea.
I guess it's all in the way we look at it. I tend to think though that it is what we make it.
Really, no one has ever actually sat down and decided what perfection is. There are no rules as to who gets to be better than who. It is a label. There is no way to reach this goal. Thousands have tried for it, strive for it, and miss. Unable to meet the demands of others.
Still we demand more. We discriminate those who do not meet our expectations, our ideas of what 'Perfect' is.
Humiliation, pain, even death. All results of a theory. And for what, More questions?
A Mistake.

I give construction criticism where it is needed. It is not needed here. I adored this piece and greatly respect the author. The title drew me in, and the writing delivered. Kudos.
