Not so perfect

I take pride in my work and I desire

To make it perfect, I admire

Thoroughness in completing a task

Certainly no less I should ever ask

Of myself, because being flawless

To me epitomizes personal success

When all elements of my work fall in place

When each variable fits in an assigned space

I produce work of the highest quality I can provide

I bask in satisfaction that I feel inside..


In a tumultuous world with challenges new

My workload exponentially grew

The pursuit of perfection conducive was not

To dealing with the unexpected onslaught

Of work, and to strike a balance between the two

Relaxing my standards was something I had to do

Yet I think with trial and error I found

The best way to create an impact all around

My work was not perfect, but I would say

It was good enough in almost every way

By not focusing on perfection, I could do more

Something I had not realized before..
