Blissful Confusion

“Failed perfection is what I have attained

Unfortunately I am just beginning to learn

That no one is perfect,

So have I really lost anything–

Except the energy I spent in vain?

The road to humility seems like a curse

But is really a blessing in disguise

You can only relate 25 years later

When you have since forgotten what you were striving for.

Seemingly perfect individuals

Are merely tortured souls–who are amazing actors.

The true strength comes from those who can show weakness and imperfection.

The only way to truly love another

Is to learn how to love yourself

Only then can true joy be established

Truly love

Don’t truly lie.

It is only unfair to yourself in the end.

A sane environment

Is the only true insanity

And the only truth is that nothing makes sense.”
