Stagnant’s Way

It’s east to sit back and watch others succeed

While they work the rest of us play,

They’re the ones so unique, the very rare breed

Great challenge won’t get in their way.

Unlike the others who got in their own

Their way seemed to always give in,

Always feeling unlucky and full of bemoan

Never knowing a life where’d they win.

Succumbing instead to their circumstance

To their destiny of life with regret,

Were born with the same potential and chance

If they’d only reversed their mindset.
