Poetry Wednesday: Unfulfilled

by Becky Stauffer

Sometimes the world 
feels so big,
and I, so small,
so weak.

I'd planned to do 
so much by now,
when I grew up,
got big.

But I never 
grew enough
to be equal 
to the task.

It's true, TB. And sometimes I set my expectations too high. I need to be more of a slacker.
