Written after I found out my first marking period grades.
I felt that it kind of fit Sasuke, though, so enjoy.

God’s Perfect Inperfection
So, kid, you think you’re hot shit?
Just because you keep telling yourself your perfect?
That your teachers and peers think you to be a god?
Well let me tell ya somethin’
You’re anything but.
With your shoulders hunched in and
Your eyes cast to the ground
You’ll never amount to more than a shadow
In the real world.
And even though they think you’re God
They’ll never know
That you’re dead inside.
Shattered remnants of yourself
Trying to mimic life.
Broken by the pressure put on you
By your family
Never happy with your achievements
But always expecting more.
Always expecting you to be the best.
You have only yourself to blame.
For your downfalls and faults
Because you began to believe
Believe that you were God
That you were perfect.
But welcome to the real world,
Where you’re killed without a second thought
And you could be living a life of cold remorse
And no one’ll give a shit.
Welcome to the real world,
Where there’s always someone better than you
No matter how hard you work
Or how perfect you are.
There’s always someone better.
Because you’ll be dead inside.
Killed by the pressure
You put on yourself.
To be God.
To be perfect.
So hold your head high, kiddo,
And stand up straight.
‘Cause nine times outta ten,
You’re the only one you got
To tell yourself
That perfection is impossible,
A figment of the human imagination.
So embrace your achievements,
No matter how small
Acknowledge your strengths,
No matter how diminutive
Are you ready
The real world?
You be swallowed
Your blasphemous thoughts?
