Mediocrity

One walked forever the vast plains of mediocrity,
No ups nor downs along the way.
He was satisfied, he was happy,
He didn't really care either way.
'Why bother trying', thought he,
'We'll all just die someday.'

The other clambered up the mountain of uncertainty,
The very earth strove against his cause.
He'd seen some fall, seen many give in,
He didn't really care it was against all odds.
'Why bother trying', said he,
'If I don't give it all I got?'

'And why bother living', thought he,
'If you won't even try and change what was?'
