Perfectionism is a formidable foe!


Beauty, poetry & prose elude her/
locked somewhere in the deep recesses of her soul/
vexed, she struggles to set them free/
but is hindered by the possibility/
of futility/
the standards set/
by her own mindset/
they seem unattainable/
too rigid/
too lofty/
to sustain/
creativity's proclamations/
she struggles to overcome/
her own battles/
with perfectionism/
she struggles to release herself/
from her fears/
she struggles with her giftedness/
she struggles to impress/
her inner poetess/
because she perceives the verses/
b4 conception/
& their flawless image/
haunts her........
