"I have this demon who wants me to run away screaming if I am going to be flawed, faillible. It wasnt me to think Im so good I must be perfect. Or nothing. I am, on the contrary, something: a being who gets tired, has shyness to fight, has more trouble than most facing people easily. If I get through this year, kicking my demon down when it comes up Ill be tired after a day's work...and its natural tiredness, not something to be ranted about in horror, Ill be able, piece by piece, to face the field of life, instead of running from it the minute it hurts.
-Sylvia Plath from her collected poems
