Nice Guys Finish Last

They wouldn’t say
nice guys finish last
if it weren’t true
but I still want to believe
good things happen to
people who are trying
to be good.

The things I do
fill my life but
they do not
fulfill me in the end
and the things I think
but do not say are all
that stand between
good enough and not.

What bothers me is
how little I ask of life
and those who fill it
and yet seem to
come up short
in every race.

But it’s like they
always say.
Nice guys
finish last.
