Mediocrity

I see my limitations -
Like a prison.
My talent -
The mediocre.
Never the best
Always good.
But not good enough
To be admired.
Full of drive, but in all directions.
Dissipating the vitality, the urge to create
Into the ordinary.

I am nothing and yet
I am everything.
I see it all, hear it all and feel it all.
It overwhelms me, weighs me down, like Sisyphus and his stone.
Always rolling downhill, never reaching the heights.
It cripples me with its weight.
I can’t get up to shape it into music,
Paint it into meaning,
Sing it into being.
It sits on top of me.
It flattens me into nothing.

Everything.
