sidelines

When your best isn't good enough, hills are mountains - and you're not invited.
Nature is no longer an open invitation.

When your best isn't good enough, the sidelines is where you find yourself sitting,
smiling sadly, because you know you belong there.

When your best isn't good enough, hard work doesn't pay off;
it doesn't register a moderate blip on the radar.



I've recently come to the realization that I don't really excel at anything.


I don't foresee knowing the complete lyrics to "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" by Meatloaf as a valuable asset. Unless karaoke is in my future.

i'm not much of an excel...er(?) at anything either. but if you can do a bunch of things comepetently enough to not screw up constantly, then success in life is no problem. you just might not be the star of the show. but the stars are always the ones who develop serious problems anyways, so who really wants to be a star?

try try try again and never really succeed right?

start over again

i'll do better next time

for real

seirously

new beginning

and another reset

I'll change i'll change i'll change


but we're made of rubber or something

just bouncing right back to where we started

try try try again

and give up.
