Peak Unsummited

Excellence unattained,
Excuses, excuses,
Lower the bar,
Lower the bar again.
When finally jump over
The lowered bar,
Peak unsummited
Looks down.
Sunk in self pity,
Rising frustration,
Life miserable.
Better to fail trying
Then daily dose of death.
One can con the world,
But lying to self?
Need to live
In a world
Without mirrors.
Perfection mirage,
Pursuit praiseworthy.

Choice

Choice to have a slow death
Lingering pain slowly sucking away
My last breath
While you rejoice
At the beauty of your lying creation
Of giving  everybody a free choice
You made sure that giving me
A choice I neither asked nor wanted
You and your cronies
Living in an alternate universe
Will line your pockets with riches
While I count my days
Burdened by your fake choices
