Perfect
Purr-fect
What a
Sweet-Sounding
Word

But it's not

Who can be Perfect?
It's just not
Possible.

You can only be
Close

Perfect is like pi
It's a number?
A thing
That goes on and
On

It's that mountain
You spend so many hours
On
Trying to reach for
It

You are so
close
to the top
But just as you
Reach up to grab
The tip,
It crumbles in
Your hand

You fall,
Air finally cooling the sweat on
Your
Hands
And you think,

Perfect

Having a goal of perfection is good, but sometimes, if one focuses too much on perfection, it can end up hurting them.

I really like how you said Perfect is like pi. It's a number. Many people feel like that. They struggle with weight issues trying to be perfect! Good job:)
