Perfect : An Acrostic Poem

Pretending to be
Everything you're
Really not. Stop trying and
Find yourself. You won't need
Everyone's approval. If you
Can't find who you really are, you can never be
Truly perfect.

Very nice! I haven't seen many acrostics here, and this is pretty good, and definitely has some meaning. 5/5

this makes me think that people are trying to be perfect so they never really can be, was that in the ballpark of what you were getting at?

Great!  You don't see many acrostic poems on Teen Ink and this is a good example of one.  Excellent work!
