The Perfect Imperfection

Perfection obtained in an uncomforting state
To say i want for nothing
Is a phrase to which
I cannot relate.
To love in perfection
Is to live with out flaw
Or a state of unreality
Not wanting anything at all.
To strategiclly place people and things
In my life,
Where the matter proposed for solution
Is rectifies with out thought;
If life is to live and learn
What really have I been taught?
That simple factors of forgive and forget
Prove to to have no pure definition of truth
And to Carpe Diem, whats the use?
If everything in like was perfect
With no up, now down, no right, no wrong
Or simply with out flaw
Then life wouldn't be that perfect at all.
