Modification

Nothing’s ever perfect in this world;

At least that’s what you’re taught.

Nothing’s ever perfect,

Until you’ve seen the sun fade the vibrant world to gray

Not until you realize that the world is not inherently grey.

Yes, the sun drained the colors, but they’re not lost;

They are forever present in the stars, engraved into the night

In the moon, competing with the above lights

In the trees, in the air that we breathe,

In the luminescence that only the deep sea creatures can see;

The colors remain vibrant to the eyes who wish to see them,

To the souls who wish to feel them.

It’s a modification, you see;

To break away from what you have learned all your life

And see the colors again with the eyes of a child

It’s a modification of what you came to believe perfection means.

  2. Beautifully written. The world it inherently imperfect but in the eye of the beholder such imperfection can be so beautiful, so impossibly indelible, perfection is the only word to describe such a thing. 🙂

            1. WOW only a year!! That is truly impressive dear. Keep up the good work 🙂 I completely relate to your inspiration from sound, as I am generally listening to music while writing. I hope you are still playing the piano too!

            2. Thank you! (: And yes, I am, although I haven’t been able to devote much time to it as of late. I just recently returned from my travels to India and Nepal, so I’m currently focusing on writing about my trip.
