Rat Race

I’ve known desire to cause despair
As I part company with patience
Disappointment gives a blank stare
Oppurtunity, like egoistic beauty, shuns

I’ve been to educational institutions
And learnt varied cultures and languages
All I could speak with divine precision
But none can help when life engages

Eventually, you did win the rugged race
And you seem to be content at that
Don’t know how I ended up here in the first place
When I’m still wondering if I am a rat
