Let loose the fear of perfection sometimes

Let loose the fear of perfection sometimes

Fears of perfection keeps us tense

Delays our progress

To protect our self-esteem and identity make a go

By removing our ego.

If we want stone-cold unshakable confidence

Let us have a dose of perseverance

Put the threat of failure at bay with all assurance

Aim for reasonable goals,

Letting time morph into challenging goals,

Yea, challenge your dreams, hopes and aspirations,

Steadily laying aside the sting of defeatism.

Take time to look at the smile of a baby,

Or a wild flower’s beauty,

Its sheer joy drinking in the sunshine,

And radiating life’s brightness like a gold mine.
