Treasure Island

Cassidy Fohs

Perfection is Perception

A fuuny thing about perfection
It is a matter of perception
Forseen in disguise
Only seen from one side
But behind this false display
There's a story on the way
One unfortunately seen
With the least idea of what it means
For nothing is perfect at all
It's simply built up like a wall
By a false idea from man kind
It is only a hope or idea with no find
There's no definition to perfection at all
It crumbles and breaks when you're idea of it falls
Till you're stuck with your one sided way
And your brain at bay
Wondering how to achieve
something that only deceives
For when all comes crumbling down
Simply look around
Now that your thoughts and ideas disappear
Notice what was not and ever here
It was merely a pretense
Blocked by a fence..
Plus a wall
For this idea was already built up and did not want to fall
But shatter it did you find
This piece of imagination in your mind
Till your view of the world is distorted
In fact in most words hopeleslly contorted
Till you can't trust what you see when you look around
But for now to the earth you're bound
Now you look around in a sad cynical view
With nothing to trust too
Now you think there's nothing left to hope
Many are stuck in the same boat
For they see Earth's sad ways
Even in the light of day
Till their drove crazy with despair
Wondering how they imagined something that was not ever there
Till finally they're freed
And they're able to rest in peace
Then perhaps who knows..
A new idea of perfection grows
Leaving them in bliss
Letting them think we at least have this
Then perhaps the hearts and souls that grew cold
Were turned back into pure gold
Then perhaps when they looked around
They smiled instead of frowned

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
