A fear of sanity.
The emptiness of silence

Pierces the soul.

While the manic hurricane with its violence,
Tears us into pieces with frequent storms.

Neither brings us satisfaction
Only serving to move us to and fro.

Don’t Look Down!

Yet trying to walk the tightrope of perfection,

Never works neither
And it is inevitable we may fall.
Still we must walk and waiverNever left nor right at all.
Upholding the thin line of morality
To prevent an endless fall.

    • I seem to be at my best when I’m at my most moderate, oddly enough, but sometimes I can get overzealous and become too fixated on trying to do things exactly right.

      Good luck with your new shop. I’m sure it will all turn out. x

    • I also think that the opposite of perfectionism can be just as much of a problem too. Absolute chaos can be just as bad for you but then we must occassionally take risks in order to progress. Thanks for the feedback.
