What Is Perfection?







What Is Perfection?

Somebody asked me to paint a picture of perfection,
And I painted a relationship fi lled of careful interjections,
Both people able to understand the other’s mind.
Both share an idea of having a fun time.
Yes, there will be arguments and there will be fi ghts.
There will also be years of hot and passionate nights.
Culture comes from ideas and beliefs that are equal,
But the ability to understand someone else makes a sequel.
Both people making choices in a selection,
All being in my understanding of perfection.
Somebody asked me what perfection was and I told them the truth.
It’s that portrait of two older people viewing each other as they were
during youth.
It’s doing something for someone to see the look on there face.
It’s messing up a few times and still having some grace.
It’s being there for someone else and having the ability to understand,
That sometimes you really do have other people’s life at hand.
In this portrait you have enlightenment and intellect.
In this portrait the other’s feelings you can detect.
Somebody asked me what perfection was and I began to say,
You can see it in their eyes as they play.
You can feel it as you think about them during the day.
It’s in every thought of you and every time they relay
Messages not just verbal but the physical kind,
And the way that your thoughts sometimes intertwine.
Somebody asked me what perfection was and asked did it really exist.
I told them it’s in your defi nition and the way that you twist
Each of your interactions and what you make of your time.
It exists but only in the right state of mind.
