Getting By


Achievement comes

from hard work and applying ourselves

toward a specific goal

but why make an effort when

we can get along on less

we get C's

we do the bare minimum

enough to get by

but never enough to truly excel

we get used to failure

we accept it as the norm

so we have lowered expectations

or none at all

which makes life easier

since not much needs to be done

mediocrity will do

we take the road already traveled

the one that everyone is on

the one that leads to the easy way out

it's easier to be average

we don't have to work

or study or apply ourselves

we can skate

we can live off of others

we only have to get by.
