Broken perfectionism

To have it all, 

in the first go,


to get disappointed,

when someone says no,


we’re used to seeing others’ high,

we only focus on our low,


they were an amateur,

before they were a pro,


a thousand torn up dreams,

before there was one to show,


it takes a lot to be a sound,

in the chaos of the echo.
