Road To Unhappiness

#

Certain things do never change.

They are part of human nature.

Worthless the advice of the sage,

As we only learn while we mature.

#

While we do so we will see

That imperfection is a part of us.

One we can't alter to the slightest degree.

One, which to live with, is a must.

#

Most people come to acknowledge this side,

Tolerating mistakes and failure.

However some never gaze at this light,

And follow the road to unhappiness.

#

'Cause there is nothing to gain in perfection

But a sore heart and soul,

Making you stare in disgust at your own reflection

As you can never live up to your goal.

#

Perfectionism is a human curse.

Sadly a curse without a cure.

It's impossible to fight this infinite thirst

With a conviction so strong and pure.

#

So you go further down the road,

Yearning for something out of your reach.

Feel everyone you encounter just glower

And the walls around you too thick to breach.

#

Every virtue has an opposite:

So, for those who live in happy imperfection

There are those who suffer from perfection.
