Prison of Perfection

Perfectionism is a prison
Competition is a cage
Reflection often ends in rage
and weeping in wisdom.

Embrace your perfect imperfections
and compete with yourself
to leave the cage,
reflect upon your rage
until you weep and become wise.

Wisdom reflects upon the competition with perfection
after the rage turned against the cage
that once was a prison.
