Some Call It Perfection

May 18, 2010
Perfection is great at hand,
Perfect some call it, but perfect is not equal to possible.
For me, my all is the only thing,
I won’t give up until my body is a lifeless shell,
Every bead of sweat is dedicated to the field,
Every written sentence is dedicated to the class room,
Every spoken word is dedicated to whom I’m speaking,
I will keep failing until I succeed,
If you believe you can't do something,
You can't do it,
Believe in yourself; believe in your work,
Try your hardest; give it your all,
A decent, or good job, is great for some,
Those people haven’t started believing yet,
But if you believe in your hardest work, then it is your perfection.

such a powerful and inspiring poem. it really motivates me, and it definitely made a mark in my mind. i will certainly remember this poem for the pure honesty and self-acceptance you speak about.

the best poems are true and honest, speaking only of the truth. this absolutely portrayed that. it's one of my favorites.

check out some of my work, too if you'd like. thx for posting this!! i look forward to reading more from you.

keep writing! (:
