Never below yet never above average
You always seem to hit this plateau.
Like climbing a mountain and grasping for the top of the ledge
Pulling yourself higher and refusing to let go.
You’re not lazy yet you’re never content
Longing for recognition and some respect.
Like sitting in a crowded SUV with no leg room in the middle seat
Wanting to lash out and do something they’d never expect.
People see you, but never recognize you
You only step half way into the spotlight.
Like trying to sing the lead and background vocals of a song
Tiring yourself just to gain flight.
You want to be great, but end up being good
Never forgetting your worth and your potential.
Like the hopeless romantic feverous is his pursuit
Refusing to believe that half the battle is mental.
