No ****** or dawdling just for fun Gotta be the best gotta be #1 I scrutinize every detail Until I am done If I am not perfect I turn face and run
Its just a day in the life of a perfectionist I could go on and on and make a long list, but I'm hopeful already that you all get the jist
I'd love to sit down and draw some cool art But if every line wasn't perfect I'd crumple it up or tear it apart However, I know that I'm talented and sharp as a dart But my ideals are too critical and not very smart However, this is my reality. So I hardly can start Eh, Scratch all that - I guess I need to restart
Its all in a day of a perfectionist I've reversed on my promise and made you a list I'm second guessing myself that you're getting the jist
I'd love to sit down and write a poem or two But it's impossible to write perfection though - we all know this to be true That fact on its own is bringing me down and making me blue Its making me sick like I'm getting the flu How can I ever release this poem? What will I do? Ugh! I've gotta scratch this again and come up with something that's new!
Don't you see? This is the life of a perfectionist I've given examples and made a small list But I'm confident now that you all get the jist
Of just what's its like being a perfectionist.
Hold up! There is one more thing I'd like to say I beat myself up every night, every day And although I fall short, I pray and I pray That this wicked perfectionism will not stay That one day I'll be content with myself and that it'll stay that way. Now I'd like to wrap this all up - if I may
Well, I guess thats just the way it is In a day of the life of a perfectionist You've heard my reasoning and you've witnessed my list So I can certainly say that you all get the jist
Of exactly what its like being a perfectionist
I came up with the theme of perfectionism and decided to write it out and explain my experiences with it. Not much more to it than that.
