Looking at the positive

autumn

I am average and ordinary
Never a star pupil
Advantages not offered
Hard work my shadow

Quite good but not brilliant
I have to work twice as hard
perseverance my friend
I won’t settle for mediocrity.

My self-esteem gets knock
Does my work deserve its place?
I question myself time and again.
For mediocrity isn’t me.
