We all have different view's when it comes , to life in general . Now with this poem I go deep into the pessimist's , view of life.
"The life of Mr Common"
Yes life is unfair.
Yet we are all privileged to , 24hrs in a day and 12 months in a year.
Yes life is really unfair.
Yes this is how I view my life.
While others living in success ville daily thrive.
I sit back live my own only to survive.
Yes it is "I" , who succumb to mediocrity.
Who feeds his mind thoughts of inferiority
Who does not believe in the fairy of superiority.
I have experience and fact's to prove it .
Me who prepares for a battle in life ,
not to win , but only to loose it.
Then I conclude with phrases like ,"I knew I couldn't do it"
Me who's head is forever bowed never chin up.
Yes me the first on the ground , Eveready to give up.
I who has something to say , defeated by stammering and nervousness never speak up.
Me when life calls I never pick up.
Who uses phrases like , "I don't have time I will do it next time "
"Now is not the right time "
"Next time will be the perfect time "
I the farmer who once planted seed's, never fertilized or cultivated
the land and never harvested any crop.
I who enjoys the company of the majority slaves to poverty ,
because we believe " its lonely at the top"
I who once read , never practiced rejected the advice
given in great books like ",The Hustlers Bible"
or Zig Ziglars "See You at The Top"
I'm giving each of you a piece of my mind ,
because I rarely use it .
The man who see's the opportunity, but never seize it.
So fearful of success that I am accustomed to defeat.
My undesired results in life I blame my parents.
My predicaments in life, I blame the government's .
Yes life is really unfair.

Thank you John ,we all have those days when we feel as if we amount to nothing or our ship is sinking . Now the power is in our ability to "shake it off" as you say , start all over again or continue where we left off. I respect the way you get your self up and strive for success, that is power .
Sometimes i feel we need to confront without being harsh , i was feeling low so i thought why not fuel my self by writing a poem so i did. Confronting my self at that moment was not pleasant but it has really helped me and i hope it may also help my readers too.

Hi Siyabonga. This is a well-written and slightly confronting piece of poetry, I have sometimes felt the way you describe but I usually manage to shake it off and strive to make things better and keep trying to succeed. Whether or not I do is a matter of opinion but I try.
