Mundane - Poem by David Knox

The definition
Just a rendition
Of average life, boring enough to lull
You into a sleep of mediocrity
Settling for second or third best, because it's easy
Not having an opinion just being unstable and breezy
And silent like the wind... that's me
The kid that's just there and then
Then just gone, no more
Not something to abhor, but worse- unknown
Talent not shown
Intelligence, not shown
Character, not shown
Promise not shown
And stuck with mundane
Stuck without a chance to prove
Just who
I am, because of silence, because of pain
But one day I'll show them, who I am one day
In a world less fey
They'll see when silence doesn't suppress
The person inside
In that day when there's no reason to hide
But for now mundane
All my efforts in vain
But hoping for something more
Even for

    Well done poetically. It burdens my heart that you feel this way, I hope you get your chance to rise above the feeling of the mundane; an opportunity to prove yourself. Remember that you're still the same person before and after you prove yourself to others, make sure you aren't doing this of them, but for you. (Report) Reply
