Mediocrity

Mediocre’s all I can shoot for right now.
Not what I consider to be mediocre,
but:
the standard mediocrity,
the dead average,
the passing grade.

 

I will never be satisfied with what I do;
I will never be good enough.
With my ever soaring standards, I will always
— and only —
be chasing achievements.
I will always find the faults;
I will always be a failure.

 

I admire those who use that to their advantage
and escalate their accomplishments.
Instead of motivation,
I’m bogged down by it
and unable to function.
All I can aim for right now is to
just get it over and done with.

And even that is a hurdle.

    1. Thank you for the sentiment. It comes as a surprise to me. I wish I could see myself that way. Thank you also for reminding me that my perceptions (especially of others’ perceptions) may not always be right.

  1. The wife and I really love this blog and appreciate the creativity and imagery you provide. Please understand that what makes the majority fall into that mediocre category is the fact that most do not even no it. They spend their lives giving in to conformity and the opinions of others instead of having a true sense of self. If you are aware, then you sir are no longer a part of the sheep, you are free.

    If you ever decide to take this blog to the next level by offering a Mobile App version we would love to help, we appreciate the hard work you have put into this blog and wish you all future success in business and in life.
    Thank you for your time, it is the most precious thing we all possess.
