Perfection

Through the eyes of another.

It's not what you want,

Not what you are,

But you strive to meet those standards.

You're happy,

You think.

The world of perfection brings comfort.

Maybe you lose yourself.

But you're Safe.

From whispers of judgement.

Yes.

It's what you want...

You think.

Why stand out when you can fit in...

They tell you.

Cleaning your mind

With their superficial ways.

Wrapped up,

Packaged to perfection.

These cloned dolls sit on the shelves of life.

Conforming.

They fit in.

You fit in.

You wish you had the courage to break free and

STAND OUT.
