Looking For Perfection - Poem by Heather Burns

If you are looking
for perfection
STOP!

Look no further
it does not exist
on this life plane.

We were all born
into sin, sinners
we are.

So we must remain
always searching,
seeking GOD.

We all strive for
it
search for it
few, if any obtain
it.

When at last our
earthly journey
is over
we will then return
to the land of
perfection.

Sit and drink from
the river of life
in peaceful
surroundings.

Gaze into the crystal
sea
meet our loved ones
resting there
