Prize Giving Day

This one is for the losers.

The lasts,
The also-rans,
The Johnny-come-latelys.

 

For you, the quiet ones,
The sitters at the edge,
The wouldn’t-push-yourself-forwards-if-your-life-depended-on-its.

 

For the sad ones,
The cross ones,
The ones who have yet to overcome.

 

The mourners,
The grievers,
The lost.

 

For the poorly.
For the ones who went before.
The ones-who-ain’t-ever-winning-an-attendance-award.

 

For the strugglers,
The stragglers,
The fallers-over,
The confused.

 

For the ones we get up for in the morning,
And the ones who haunt us at night.
