I try so hard to control
every little detail of life,
a distraction so divine,
that I forget to live.
I want to let go,
I want to be free
but it’s the details
that hold control of me.

I try so hard to forgive
those who cannot live
up to my expectations.

But no matter what,
a part of me always
pities the way
mere mortals live.
