Perfection is...


Not triumph, but failure;

Not prosperity, but defeat;

Not abundance, but deficiency, 

The acknowledgement of imperfection,

The acceptance of what is not and never will be, 

The compliance to squander,

But the incentive to gain

Not affirmation, but respect;

Not jubilation, but gratification;

Not euphoria; but just enough phoria to be perfectly imperfect
