More Than Mediocre

by Erin
Written December 10-11, 2006

You deserved more from me.
You were the joke of the year,
the heartsick alcoholic,
and through our laughs
we missed your inspiration.

You loved it to obsession,
yet we thought otherwise.
How could we have
gleefully overlooked
your undeniable passion?

You are more than mediocre,
more than we all attribute you.
Endure through the
neglectful opinions,
and overcome our oblivion.

You deserve so much more.
You are greater than your year,
better than your peers.
Plow through the doubt.
All will see your inspiration.
