"Life is too short to be anything but happy."

next to your towering expectations

i am tiny

because whatever accomplishments i have

are never quite

sufficiently large enough

to even touch the tip

of what you expect out of me




i still grow closer to the sky

and i can touch the clouds

that kiss my cheeks

and whisper

it's okay

if i can't reach the top




my building is for me

to live in

to scale

to peer out over the world

and see the grand picture

of what it means to live


and to you

my achievements aren't colossal

or even satisfactory

just as i

am not as adequate

as i should be




on the contrary

looking at my skyline

of feats stacked upon feats

i know that

I am enough.


And I always will be.
