The fruitless search for perfection
Disappointment

Why do you keep searching?
I stopped helping you a long time ago.

Not finding what you want
you apply force, try to control,
to create what you seek.

But it remains elusive,
just beyond your reach somehow...
dancing just beyond your grasp.

A little something always off,
never quite right,
just shy of your ideal.

Don't you realize it's just a myth?
A dream never to be controlled?
Such frustration!

Just open your eyes
and see with your heart.
It's been here all along!

Around you, beside you, in front of you.
Why do you keep searching?
I understood Perfection a long time ago.
