Lyric discussion by raspberryhue03 

To me it means that everyone is striving for their own idea of ideal, or "to be a work of art."

The writer has realized that everyone's ideas of Love, Life and Happiness differ from person to person and has come to accept that his ideals aren't the same as other peoples, but that doesn't mean the other person's ideals are bad/wrong.

He realizes that everyone is trying to become that "piece of art" in their mind, or to find that "beautiful idea"
