"Love is a poison, but it is also the antidote."

Most have called it impossible to reach,
Yet most still attempt to grasp it.
Clutching, grabbing, almost there,
But success is incredibly rare.

The truth still proves to be true,
Perfection does not exist.
But the need for others to approve,
Is so large it can’t be missed.

We strive and fight,
Climbing towards the top.
You better hold on tight!
Because the war will never stop.

Mission impossible,
This quest has no end.
But escape is still available,
Forfeit while you can.

I have absolutely no idea where my inspiration for this was. I started typing random words and picked one. That's how i normally choose a topic to write about.

"You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's Heaven on Earth."
