Poetry

Dejected

I try,

And try,

So, why do I feel as if I come up short?

And, maybe I do.


Maybe….just maybe….

That’s normal.

Opportunities are limited,

And succeeding is rare.


I shouldn’t feel entitled to success.

If anything, I’m entitled to the chance….

The opportunity….

No.

Not everyone has these opportunities I do.


I am privileged.

And so, I should be grateful,

For every single chance I get.

Because there’s others out there,

Who don’t have the options I have.


I am grateful.

If I fail,

I’m allowed to be sad.

What’s forbidden,

Is the expectation of success.


Everyone tries,

And fails.

But, that’s okay.

It makes us work harder,

To be the best we can be.

As humbly as possible.
