the art of gibberish

I can not be perfect,
I hate perfection.
I can not please you,
I go my own direction.
I may cause disappointment,
I may root misconception.
But I will create patches,
Whenever tears our relation.

I will keep to stand there
And wait for your reception.

Notes: Sounds meaningless? Great!
Inspiration: 3 words challenge.

  1. Nice poem, but you got it wrong.

    You are perfect you know.
    You fit the Maria Imran shaped hole in the universe perfectly.
    You’re the perfect you.

    What you’re not is the perfect what-somebody-else-wants-you-to-be.
    So why try?

    • You know what those words did?
      Anyways, thank you! I am so not the perfect what-they-want-me-to-be, and you’re right about this. I am me, but that’s so exactly what they don’t want me to be.
      Why try? I don’t know. It’s like following some trait blindly, and stumbling, and following.
      And thanks again for leaving these happy drops. πŸ™‚

      • You know what those words did?

        Umm, maybe.

        Reminded you of what you already knew?
        But had forgotten?
        Because everyone else kept telling you something different?

        I can’t do much with words really.
        Can’t even cast a decent spell with them these days.

  2. You know ‘perfects’ are boring…..The real thrill is in being imperfect yet beautiful ! Nothing can be perfect , you may have heard that. But things can be more beautiful than being perfect……
    I hope I make some sense. And it was not meaningless at all……..
    Sae ja rae ho…Keep it up ❀ πŸ™‚ Love you !

    • ‘Perfects are boring’ you’re right. πŸ˜‰ Shayad because they change themselves so much to gain that ‘perfection’ ke phir they lose their ronaq or inner peace. But to *not* strive for perfection, is more of an art than to be perfect, maybe.

      ‘Nothing can be perfect’ goes right too. And hey, you make all sense. πŸ™‚
      Sae ja rhi hun? Shukrya πŸ˜€ ILYM like always! πŸ˜‰

  3. Here is my definition of perfection: A Fleeting Concept

    Reason: What’s “perfect” to anyone today may not be “perfect” tomorrow. We all change going through this thing called life and our perception of what is “perfect” changes as well, hence my definition πŸ™‚

    Loved your poem, it’s pithy and meaningful…

    • Thank you for your kind visit and wonderful definition! πŸ™‚

      What’s β€œperfect” to anyone today may not be β€œperfect” tomorrow

      I agree. What’s perfect today won’t be perfect everyday because it doesn’t take much time for perceptions to change! Life is such a roller-coaster.
      Glad you liked the poem. =)

      • Glad you like my definition. I came up with it over 20-years ago and think it is right on and pithy. By the way, where did you get the photo that you use for your Gravatar? It’s stunningly beautiful!!! You are obviously very talented using WordPress and it shows. How long have you been using it? You should add tips and techniques to your blog so we can all learn from you. I’m here for the ride, that’s for sure.

        Thank you for sharing and caring, I love the Open Source Community…

        • You came up with it over 20 years ago? Sounds impressive! =)
          Thankyou for your kind words. But I am on my way learning too.. πŸ™‚ It has been three years now that I joined WP.
          About the Gravatar, I don’t exactly remember where I found it from; (and it certainly is not a shot of my own) but I liked it when I saw it and then it became a part of randomlyabstract. πŸ™‚

          Thank you again for your generous remarks! I look forward to your posts, and I hope you will be visiting again! πŸ™‚

          • I am old school technology, i.e. I am a data processor first and foremost and specialize in database design and maintenance through various interfaces but my primary one now is a web page built using php connected to a MySQL database. I have a business partner who handles the web page interface although I can do that too to some extent. I discovered WP about 6-months ago but haven’t really used it as extensively as you have but we are about to start.

            I love the way you have laid out your blog and website. You are very talented and creative and it shows. I plan to study your design for ideas and I hope you don’t mind if I emulate what you have done. If we need help with something that you have already done, would you be willing to help us out? We’re willing to pay you for your help if you are interested.

            Oh, one last thing. I am jealous that you got the name Randomly Abstract because I love it!!! I have always loved Abstract Art and the thought of it being random seems so natural to me. What else could it be, right?

            Now, I think I’ll check out your entire website πŸ™‚

  5. Utterly meaningless …. ab kisi ko to tera bharam rkhna tha … so le mai ne keh dia …

    Kia baqwaas thi … na koi sir na pair … aisi aala paye ki bongi to mai ne bhi kabhi nahi mari … !!! πŸ˜€

    well now, seems you’ve written the story of my life ere you ever met me. see, i told you i’d be around. now, do you have a spare lifetime to lend me so i can read, absorb, and know everything in my own time?

      • rjl2727 says:

        well, some of my friends believe in the eternal after the death of this life, and wish me to return to that faith. and maybe i will, thus thinking i’d have eternity to finish reading it all. alas, doubtful that anything we write here and now will be found in that realm. therefore, i’m going to quit my jobs and live on welfare so i have abundant time to catch up on reading.

          • rjl2727 says:

            OK, i will do as you suggest. meanwhile, as with another friend or two, i respect and admire your faith. i just need a little space and time to find mine again. now, where did i leave it?? but i could never quit my jobs because i am blessed to be doing what i love, and gladly submit to 12-14 hour days.

  7. This perfectly describes how I feel! Expectations lead disappointments. I rather not be considered “perfect” or anything close to it, it leaves room for error to be accepted if it presents itself. Strong piece!
