Mediocre Inc.

At what age did you find that mediocre's fine,
In corporate halls where the average thrives?
Playing the game with a heart that's malign,
Ignoring respect for the human lives.

Do just the minimum, meets expectations align,
Why strive for more when the soul rarely jives?
It's all about survival, your mental health's sign,
I'd rather close myself in my shell than live this hell.

In realms where misery loves company well,
I choose my own path, adventures to tell.
No more the facade, no more the corporate spell,
Embracing my freedom, where true passions swell.

The inspiration for this poem comes from a critical perspective on corporate culture, particularly the realization that striving for mediocrity can be a form of self-preservation in a toxic work environment. It also advocates for choosing a more authentic and fulfilling path, despite the pressures to conform to toxic corporate culture.
