I'm an amateur at this
I'm half way through my life expectancy
And I still don't really know what to expect
Part of me wants the change to stop
Or at least to slow way down
Give us a rest
Let us get some confidence,
Let us bring some professionalism to living
This is the same part of me
That dreams of perfection,
the number one, Infinity,
And one hundred percent.
We must conceive of perfection
We must be able to make use of the ideal
But to believe in it
To measure life against it
To use it as a light
To cast your shadows of purpose with it
Is a dangerous abuse
