The Average Person

Poem by: Caroline Levine

Choices come to every man
and what is done is yours to plan.
For you know well the truth in action,
but truth is never your reaction.

And seldom has a day gone by
where you stopped to wonder why
those around you have no shame, 
when it’s all you’ve to your name. 

So, when success is close at hand, 
know that it is something planned, 
for never does a fellow win
without a healthy dose of sin.

After all, what harm is done–
without struggle, no battle won. 
But something hidden, is something barred
and the devil knows and calls your card.
