The Consolations For My Mediocrity - Poem by Shalom Freedman

There are many consolations for my mediocrity-

Most are like me
Very few are great-

I tried and wrote what I had to-
I did not give up-

Greatness is a gift of God
I was not given-

A petty person's consolation
In the end perhaps too the greatest
Will know oblivion-

And last and in the end
There is no consolation for having failed.
