something missing

1 Aug

sometimes i feel as though i was born

with something missing

or perhaps just undeveloped

i made my entry into this world

much too early

carved out squawking

you could fit me in a shoe box they all said

my connection severed

cut short, muted, mid-sentence

leaving me with a sense of something missing

i could be more, so much more

there is no one to blame but the universe

and myself

for i chose to give life to that little bundle of flesh and bone

against all odds

against all expectations

i may have been sold short by circumstance

but i will more than make good

with what is left
