Everyone wishes for a perfect world

A perfect world empty of hate, sorrow, and pain

But without imperfection, would perfection be as perfect

As it would be if compared against the dark and evil?


A perfect world is one devoid of wishes

Devoid of the want and the desire that defines you

And without wishes, you are without purpose

Without a goal to keep you running at the same pace


For journey is more important than destination

 Destination brings end to the wishing and the hoping

And journey fuels it; brings fire to the eyes and soul

Perhaps also brings to light another wish to wish


Everyone wishes for a perfect world

Yet perfection is the only imperfection

Instead of wishing away your wishes forever

Wish to always have something to wish for

Wish to always live in imperfection

      Thank you! I wasn't sure if it would turn out very well because with this I was just kind of thinking out loud... I didn't really have a very strong idea when I started out. 🙂

        Thanks. xD I used to write in free style all the time, then I got into things with rhyme schemes.... I like both. 🙂
