we are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect. But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence. I am not interested in just being good


Bounded in a state that I cannot escape

This rope burdens me to the ground with nowhere to go

I try to wiggle free but the tension is too strong

It restrains me from flight without me having done wrong

besides having been born as a mythical creature

I try to spread my glowing wings but not even that can be done

What must be done for me to be set free

From the pain that this trap is causing me

My hair the color of fresh embers swings viciously as I try to flee

I've never flapped so mightily and vigorously

I want to fly and show my ability

Let the world see what I am capable of

How I fly as majestically as a bird

The rays of the sunlight reflect off of my translucent wings

Dispersing colors that varies that of a rainbow

Skin that has a soft tan glow

Some may say I am the image of perfection

But I cannot escape these ropes that bound me for eternity
