All Are Ordinary Poem by Chris Jibero


Never brag that you cannot do
What ordinary people ordinarily do
Because you have gone pass them
On the ladder of success
For the capricious wind of fate
May blow evil your way without warning
Thereby sweeping you back to the bottom rung
Thickly populated by hustlers
Who are yet grappling and scrambling
To move up but once
But you might not find an easy foothold
To move up again
And thus would you learn that all are ordinary
And that attaining good success
Could be easier than maintaining it.
