Perfection The situation is perfection And therein lies its fault For nothing can be perfect Nothing at all Testing all the waters Afraid to jump right in So many possibilities That perfection brings And with these possibilities Is an awful lot of doubt Things of true perfection Can be hard to figure out

emojis are the little icons that you can add to an e-mail.
like happy faces, or thumbs up.
they're everywhere!

Your sample poem 'perfection' raises an interesting problem being faced in our schools causing stress and mental health problems. Students feel they have to be 'perfect'. They are being introduced to 'fails of the famous' who they have heard of and relate to. You learn only by successive failures. And you don't have to get 100% in a test. 97% is OK.

Thanks for reading "Abnormal Behavior".
Poet's usually don't qualify. haha
