Perfection is an illusion
As heaven is to Earth,
A painted cloudy paradise
Inspired by human dearth.

Flawless is the pole star
Leading man to fabled land,
Still distant the Polaris
From man's conceited hand.

Yet perfection's only flaw
That it will never know,
Perfection appears resplendent
Draped in fault's shadow.

:iconshehrozeameen:
This is a powerful narration about perfection's paradoxical pretension that in itself categorically compromises upon what it is trying to convey.

In the process of defining the paragons of ideals which are necessary for us as human beings to define ourselves, we are unable to comprehend the basic asset of our existence - being unable to look into the mirror and appreciate the simplest fact that we are all perfect, and it is simply this bare reality which is hidden behind drapery upon drapery of shadow and doubt.

Nevertheless, with the constitution of narcissistic tendencies that define what we are, we can only hope that those who struggle for perfection understand that the illusion defines itself "perfectly".

Perfection has always been an illusion. We will never attain it but we can move forward towards it.
