Inktober 2023 - GOLDEN

GOLDEN -  6th October

The Golden Child is full of promise - destined for success.

They drift along effortlessly - never any stress.

Everything they do, every decision that they take,

Enhances the perception that they never make mistakes.

No matter what they're doing, whether work or whether play,

They're always on the winning team, every single day.

The opposite of golden? A miserable life to lead.

Self-loathing woe-is-me - suffering guaranteed.

Victims all the time. No agency to correct

A life of doom-and-gloom, to one which is perfect.

The question we should ask, what we'd all like to know

If success begets success, might the opposite be so?
