Philosophy of Perfection By Jasen Sousa

Philosophy of Perfection

During observing
the way people act,
I’ve noticed something
in those who have accomplished
a great deal. Passion they once had to be great
is a sensation they no longer feel.

I have decided, no matter
what I accomplish in my life,
I will always see myself as a failure. A disgrace.

I believe this is the only way
for the impossible to become possible,
is that understood? Others might see
me as a great man, but it's only because I think
I am no good.

I have witnessed those who believe
they are God’s gift.
There is nothing in their life left to prove,
they sit back and relax, they’re in a great groove,
content. Laid back and lazy,
they adore themselves so much, greatness
is way out of touch.

No matter what I do in life, it will never be enough.
The heart that pumps in my chest
will never let me rest,
hungry to be a hero,
I starve for success.

It’s bad for your health
to be too full of yourself, I’m empty,
all my energy goes to preserving my memory.

I will not lay down silently, no matter how many
awards and accolades I receive,
because I will always believe
there is more I must achieve.
