Over-achiever

We set ourselves up for failure
Disappointment a welcome guest
Waste time in procrastination
To feather our barren nest

And trying too hard, fall shorter
Than each unrealistic goal
Until trying at all seems futile
Just digging a deeper hole

It’s time for a new perspective
A reality check, if you will
See your life as a total stranger
Might, and spit out the bitter pill

For life is no bed of roses
On that we may all agree
But there’s merit, nay, even distinction
In enjoying the little achieved
