High Bar

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.
