When Will Perfection Come?

You cannot please everyone
I want to stand firm in faith all the time.
But sometimes, doubts unsettle my balance.

I want to please everyone every time.
But I can only try, I can’t do it obviously?

I want to be all smiles whenever you see me.
But not when sometimes pains sting like bees.

I want to reach out and change the world.
Who do I think I am? Definitely not God!

I want to look young and beautiful forever.
But natural laws are still actively working in me.

I want to get everyone to like me.
Not when ‘hate’ is still a word in the dictionary.

I strive to be better than I am now.
But when will perfection come?
