Perfect


"It doesn't matter if you made a mistake.
You're still awesome."
But...
I'm not-

I have to be perfect. I have to rise
To expectations and then defy them.
I can never make mistakes. I have to
Evade them and then defy them.
I have to be perfect. I have to prove
My worth and then defy it.
I can never let myself trip. I have to
Catch myself and then defy myself.

Mistakes are wrong.
I can't make them.
They're inexcusable.

...Aren't they—

NO.
