I struggle to comprehend.
To see others how they are.
Rather than how I want them to be.
I underestimate people.
Undervalue their efforts when I should appreciate their worth.
I don’t allow for mistakes from myself or others.
Though it’s those very mistakes that make us human.
I hold the world to impossible standards.
I ask of myself too much.
Of those around me even more.
I ruin friendships and relationships.
Push the world far away.
Too brutally honest for a world that chooses to be lied too.
I need to give ground before I stand alone at the edge.
With no one around to pull me back.
