I think I realised long ago,
There are no plans for me
There will be no fanfare as I pass through
My meat pie destiny.
There are no Nobel Prizes,
To proclaim my importance by,
No Golden Globes as doorstops,
No private jet from which I fly.
The world did not get curious
Or ponder what I would become

Turns out I'm just a plain Jane girl

Hi, Ruby, again. Do you check your inbox? Because I sent you an email. Second, this is a great poem, and I agree with Lyn.10/10 And last of all, I have done a new poem called 'Not A Single Tear', and I invite you to read it, as well as other people that visit this poem. Thanks, Tiegan.

Love that title-it sums if all up very well. Your mix of humor with pathos was very clever. Just a good old down to earth write and well done.

Sensitive observations, and a well written interpretation. It's not you, and it's not me. Not a trace of beige on our ceilings :)

This is an awsome read, every line resonates with complete truth, its funny and heart breaking at the same time, most of us never set our goals high enough to live, but who needs rewards when the best thing is to live with integrity and tenacity. Worth a 10

You and me too Ruby - I think many of us can relate to this. Perhaps we are all special in our own little way though. Excellent write.
