Sober Alcoholics: (The Perfectionist)

No, wait, it’s not ready yet.
We need to pay attention to every detail.
Quality is the only standard accepted.
This is not going anywhere until it’s perfect.

Forgive me I’m a bit of a perfectionist.
I prefer to consider every possible scenario.
I hate coming out as if I’m naive.
In every attempt, I wanna show what I’m capable of.

This is actually why I never start anything.
I am my own worst critic.
There are always 10 ways why it won’t work, and 1 that it will.
I always go with the bigger statistics.

If I can’t deal with one critic, (me), how can I deal with the world?
I, too, judge the world harshly, so it won’t spare me.
That’s why I’m waiting for the perfect idea.
So that when I come, they won’t deny me.

I’ve been waiting for so long, but nothing’s coming.
I’m now just finding ways to make new excuses.
In the midst of it all, I’m struggling to let go of my critic.
I just found out I’m not a perfectionist, I’m just insecure.

There goes my ego…
