Retrospectively Thinking About Perfectionism

I once was told we are born pure

And the Devil is on a mission

Trying to trip our every step

Manipulating inhibitions

This ingrained a fear of mistakes

Though I want to make them all

Bruise my body, scrape my knees

I want to feel the fall

    Actually we aren’t born pure. We are born into sin, but we still shouldn’t fear mistakes. We can learn from our mistakes. Sometimes that’s the only way we ever learn.
