Opportunities for mediocrity

Are endless.

Ubiquitous.

Almost inevitable.

Where we leave our heart

At the door

And occupy the least demanding seat

In the room.

No raising of hands

No attempts to do better-

Nothing too costly.

Plenty rolling of eyes

Plenty defence of the status quo

Especially if it’s convenient

For ourselves.

For now.

The chance to do bare minimum

To live thoughtlessly,

Distractedly,

Self-indulgently

Is the chance of a lifetime

Because there are enough

Opportunities for mediocrity

To keep us half-hearted and lukewarm

For life.
