I carry the world on my shoulders
but it's heavy, any moment now
like a toy building block it will come
tumbling down  merrily merrily
all just a dream, a joy imperfect.

To be imperfect is my true joy
detached from the dreariness of life
No regrets for visions turning sour
I stand on a stage acting my roles
caring not  if I forget my lines

Nothing can tarnish my confidence
Blunders shrugged off with irreverence
my deep play a ruminating ride
into casual elegance leavened
with an optimistic wariness.

Like aging, my competence conceals
patches of wrinkles, not to be smoothed
into a sense of mediocrity
not quite belonging to anyone
but myself and I am my own man.

Perfection is a perpetual chase. The many comforts of imperfection have been severely underrated primarily by perfectionists. You've a calm easiness that only being an "imperfect" can award. You've my vote my dear.

Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...please!
