"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss

The world isn't my oyster
It is theirs.
They who expect me to be
One mistake
I am judged
Leaving me feeling worn
And beaten
Like a pair
Of your favorite shoes
I do not believe in perfection
Reside in everyone
But they-
They who
They who expect perfection
I cannot escape their clutches

The author's comments:
Every day, there is a struggle for perfection. But there is no such thing. My hope is that you, the reader, are able to understand where this poem is coming from. But even if perfection does not exist, there is true perfection, and that is you.
