Can you live with the imperfections
That dominate the world of man?
Or is each one the energy which drives
The incessant technology that can
    Provide the illusions from desire?

What is within our imperfections
That stimulates the energy of man?
Can it be harnessed to drive our lives
To an inherent beauty which can
    Provide the growth from desire?

Accepting we are the imperfections,
That provides the nurture of man,
Then we accept our lives and drives
And seek understanding which can
    Provide peace from the desire.
