It's a Bitch

There are those very moments,
when life is so unfair,
when others don't appreciate;
nor even truly care.
We want to be successful,
we want acknowledgement,
but cleverness won't make it so;
and failure does result.
In truth it's not important,
what others think of us,
but it's a bitch when we condemn
ourselves for what we are.
For everything's opinion,
and most count all for naught,
and being praised is meaningless;
what matters is our path.
The talented will be ignored,
success will find a place,
with things so very ordinary;
it's just the way it is.
So live your truth with courage,
and know that it  provides,
true meaning and great purpose;
your Soul's gift justified.
