But What If I'm Not Perfect

September 11, 2008
By Hana Connelly, Cambridge, MA

I want success
I want perfection
I want to impress
I want affection
I want to achieve
I want to believe

I want to be above
I want to be correct
I want love
I want respect
I want to be free
I want to be happy
Nothing less

I want it all so much
I stand rooted to the spot
Paralyzed
Unmoving
Afraid that if I try
I will fail
