Path to Perfection


No one's perfect
They say
Perfection's ever improving
Maybe reaching a limit
It's like
An infinite series
That converges to
An irrational number
Which's not defined
As exact value.

Your own shortcomings
Or some limitations
No one knows
But you
Never announce them
To someone you meet
They may be used
Against you
Keep to yourself
And resolve to improve.

Perfection's a goal
Of a lifetime
Maybe attainable
With some effort
Path to perfection
Can be clearly defined
It's simple to monitor
And correct the deviations
At every stage
And make progress.

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:

The solitary child.
