Carpe Me (Diem)

I’m not the brightest star

in the midnight sky;

Nor am I

the fluffiest cloud

pottering by;

I’m neither too quiet

nor a fraction too loud;

I’m moderate, medium;

neither humble, nor proud;

Middling of the road,

half on half off;

And not frog-prince or toad,

pauper or toff.

I’m extremely limited

never first nor last,

top or the bottom;

travelling neither

too slow or arriving too fast;

I’m me (carpe) diem

I’m not this thing or that;

And I always know for certain

just where I am at.
