Perfection Is My Worst Enemy

AN OUTLAW LIKE JOHN DILLINGER
A FASHION ICON LIKE CALVIN KLEIN
LEGENDARY LIKE TUPAC SHAKUR
WITH A MIND OF ALBERT EINSTEIN
PERFECTION IS MY WORST ENEMY
I SHARE QUALITIES OF ALL THESE MEN
STILL I AM NOT PERFECT
MY DEMISE WILL BE RESULT OF MY SIN
PERFECTION IS MY WORST ENEMY
I STRIVE FOR IT DAILY BUT CAN NOT CONTAIN
NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY
MEDIOCRITY I CONTINUE TO SUSTAIN
PERFECTION IS MY WORST ENEMY
I EVEN TRY TO FIND THE PERFECT GIRL
UNFORTUNATELY SHE DOESN'T EXIST
INSTEAD OF DIAMONDS I SETTLE FOR PEARLS
PERFECTION IS MY WORST ENEMY
I WANT THE PERFECT PAIR OF SHOE
AS I OPEN UP MY CLOSET
IM ON PAIR NUMBER 52
PERFECTION IS MY WORST ENEMY
I EVEN TRY 2 HAVE PERFECT SEX
2 MINUTES LATER I SAY HUMBLY
"IT WILL GET BETTER THE NEXT" LOL
SINCE I AM NOT PERFECT
THIS IS THE CLOSEST I WILL EVER BE
WHICH IS NOT CLOSE AT ALL
PERFECTION IS MY WORST ENEMY

Ah ha that was brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! V for vendetta has a point (how cool was that film) The poem does contrast with I have come to play. Although it isn't a story so you can change the poems any way you please. even write one about being nothing but it doesn't have to be about you. I love your work laddie, give us more to bob along to.

...Tt seems, you suggest that 'perfection' is 'your shadow'...'chasing it'... (I have come 2 play), something very 'hard to catch' or as you suggest..., "your enemy". In some very odd way it's almost seems as if you are at war with yourself.

Well done, my friend! I love the message and how you told it. And I can take this subject personal too, for i feel the same way. It's like you do your best, and then you start beating yourself up for you feel you can do much better. And your mind is your worst enemy for it constantly berates you that you can do better. UGGGGGH! Frustrating! But we all are our own worst critic. And that is the great message you tell here.

Synopsis
I think we all have had a battle of trying 2 be perfect at a time or two whether it be for somebody else or simply yourself. This is my poem dedicated to an unachievable goal but hey, why not try lol
