an ode to the perfectionist.


 

"An Ode to the Perfectionist"

Abigail Rose Richards


My dear,

your Virgo tendencies

naturally seek perfection in everything you do;

to color outside the lines is a nightmare.

Surely they would not approve!

The countless erasers you have gone through,

just to meet the impossible extinction

of your inevitable imperfections.

How many projects have been disposed of

just because they have not met to your

highest of standards?

Love and let go;

embrace the artistic challenge,

but do not wane away

from your flawed uniqueness.

My dear,

you are as close to perfection in my eyes.
