how big am i?

9 Nov

when i feel like a chump

punched in the gut

and want to retreat into a narrow

crevice of a life

absorbed in my own petty concerns

i ask myself….how big?

how big am i?

big enough to recognize that the horrors

i see in my enemies eyes

are but a reflection of my own?

big enough to reach out as one bozo

to another?

so that we may share the same bus?

big enough to love

when it is most difficult to love?

i know how tiny i can be

i can sink right down into the deep

dark earth

but how big?

how big am i?
