Honorable Mention

An oxymoronic occupation
With a job description
Of “Not good enough,
Try again.”

The multifarious emotions
Of being a runner up.
Honor in the effort,
A participation trophy, if you will.

But merely a mention,
A temporal tribute,
Fading, festering,
And falling into the void.

Bitterly excited,
There’s no place I’d rather be.
For I was merely myself;
And at that, I’ll forever be
Better
Than everyone else.
