“Advance, and never halt, for advancing is perfection. Advance and do not fear the thorns in the path, for they draw only corrupt blood.”_ Khalil Gibran

Perfection is nothing but,


Something that only exists

In Imagination.

Perfection is,

What we make it.

Then how can one say,

Life is Perfect when,

Perfection doesn’t exist?


Does one not feel His Presence

In His Absence?

Does one not believe in the Unseen

And yet, keep the Faith?

And can one not,

Make life Perfect,

No matter how Imperfect it may appear?

This was the very first poem I wrote after experiencing that bubbling of thoughts. Though I believe that Perfection is really just an illusion, I also firmly believe that in trying to catch Perfection, one can embrace that which one aims to catch. Vince Lombardi puts is beautifully, “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.” Poetry has taught me that, “It is through art, and through art only, that we can realise our perfection.” Oscar Wilde.
