Struggling to be perfect

September 27, 2007
By Mirette Farid, Cairo, ZZ

Struggling to be perfect and losing yourself?
Or filled with defects and pretending to be deaf?
Confident, prude, selfish or shrewd,
Opinionative or proud, flawless or filled with doubt,
Calm and quiet or the devil’s client,
Blissful, trustworthy or dreadful and unworthy,
An open-minded wit or a retarded nit-wit.
You can either change your point of view,
Or you can change the world with you.
