Iron Out the Kinks (Poem)

“I conceived the bold and arduous project
of arriving at moral perfection.”
-Ben Franklin

Iron out the kinks
Smooth out the seams
Eliminate things that
Distract from your dreams

Sharpen your game
Trim any fat
Streamline the system
Cut out the crap

Refine your bad habits
Improve over time
Pull out the weeds that
Litter your mind

Tighten the belt
Straighten the slack
Refill or redo where
Anything lacks

Take pride in your work
Casualness won’t do
(Mediocrity just
Doesn’t suit you)

Perfection these days seems to
Have a bad name
May not always hit it;
at least we can aim!


“Don’t be a scrub! Rise to the high ground of spiritual, mental, and physical excellence. Mediocrity will never do; you are capable of something better.”
-Gordon B Hinckley
