Extraordinarily Ordinary

Extraordinarily
Arbitrarily
Ordinary ‘ole me
Not particularly young
Not particularly old
I’m stuck somewhere in between
Pretty (with effort)
Questionable (without)
The fact is I am pretty plain
Not reserved
Not bold
Not baleful
Not cold
But also not really that great
Extraordinarily
Arbitrarily
Ordinary ‘ole me
Aching to excel
At just one thing (anything)
And hoping for more than a dream

Pretty Plain
