We are all different

How could you expect me to be perfect ?

I can never be perfect, Neither can you.

We have our limitations.

No matter how well we try,

we cannot attain perfection

in everything that we do.

Why should you expect me to be like you?

You and I are two different persons.

You are You and I am me.

Your ideas, your capabilities will differ

from those of mine.

cannot ever be the same.

Why make comparisons?

How could one person

match some one else ?

We can change our ways, put in efforts,

But never ever can we do the same thing ,

the same way with the same result.

I'm sorry to say people do not change. They are who they are no matter how hard we try.

Kamalesh, you have written a beautiful poem reflecting on very sensitive issues of comparisons,expectations and perfection! Nobody can be perfect,thats for sure but dont you think the definition of perfect is different for different people? It would be impossible to be perfect for someone and then expect someone else to be perfect according to one's own definition.

It is the tendency of human beings to try to change others rather than oneself. I think thats the most imperfect thing to expect.

great read. Hope you are all well!
