Perfection is my enemy
It always gets the best of me
Saying who I should and shouldn’’t be
Perfection will be the death of me
Always infecting me
Messing with me mentally
They say keep your enemies closer
Maybe I shouldn’’t have listened
I’’ve kept it so close
Now, that enemy is me

Todays poetry contest entry was written by India Rankin.


Do you think it could be the best new poem in 2013?
