I know my place - Contest

My position in life 
Seems to be in a queue,
Never quite getting to the front,
Wondering what I should do

Should  I change my name to "nearly",
That's got  a cheerful zing.
The one I would love dearly
is the one that goes with a "ring"

That queue is long and painful
walked it once before.
Nearly at the front,  then 
he was called to God's door.

Now I wait and wonder
If next time it will go right
Trouble is in frustration
I have a verbal fight

Think I have worked it out now
Some duct tape to shut me up
Smile sweetly and nod my head
Do you think that will be enough?

    If I get to answer the question, the answer is no that won't work, not for long anyway. Really nice poem, good work.

    Seren, say no to the duct tape and let your inner self be heard. The duct tape line made me laugh out loud, because I feel that way sometimes as well. You are too strong a woman to nod sweetly, you know it won't be enough. You deserve the best always. Heartfelt write! Hugs
