Perfection’s Price

“How are you always so perfect?” they say,
“How do I make A’s like you do?” they ask. 
“Just be quiet, of course you got an A,”
“Can you send me your outline for the task?”

“You always have a smile stamped on your face,”
“I am proud of you; a perfect person,”
“You are like sunshine, mistakes have no trace,”
“It never sets, your life never worsens.”

But they do not see perfection’s huge hole, 
When you fall and fall there is no way out,
They don’t know the hours she cried, oh its toll,
She lies in the canyon. She cannot shout.
