Keep striving for a better you

There is no shame in imperfection
Keep trying to do better, be a better you
But don't internalize or fear rejection
Or cry for not attaining what you pursue

Good things don't come to those who wait
Unless during that wait, they keep occupied
Don't let your future be destined by fate
Work, learn, live, don't let the time slide

Sometimes the reward is in the pursuit
Small steps over time can accomplish much
Many things will take time to bear fruit
Don't let an imperfection be your crutch
