We Try So Hard

p1070312-2_watermarked

We try so hard
to be correct,
perfect.
But I wonder who decides
what is correct
or perfect.

Why do I think
I have to conform
to what has been decided
by someone I don’t even know.

I am simply who I have become
while trying,
and yet I still am not
perfect
or correct.

Does anyone really mind,
and do I really mind if they do.

Certainly not.

So why do I still try so hard
to be something I don’t really care about.
Why do we try so hard?
