Do you know what it's like to not make the grade?
To fail only at your personal standards, but theirs as well?
Do you know what it's like to feel like you're not good enough?
not worthy?
a failure?
Did you ever know what it was like to not be soaring ahead of everyone else?
To be only just making the grade?
What do you do when you think you fail?
Did you really?
Or is this just the crushing blow of not being perfect, or close to.
Is this just you, unused to being mediocre, being ordinary?
Throw a temper tantrum, perhaps? How about bug the teacher for every little mark possible?

I cannot remember a time when life was not about getting one-up on the other guy.
I suppose Aussie culture fosters this with our severe case of tall poppy syndrome.

Such a shame.
Such a shame indeed.
