One

Title: One
Category: Poetry
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Theme(s): Hoplessness, Life

What difference is one life,
In the large world where we live?
Good isn't good enough
And great will never be best

Best is so far out of reach
That many dreams fall away
Once vibrant pictures of future
Are outdated and painfully crushed

What is encouraging us
To dream again once more
Nothing can ever be worth it
To give your all and fail

Why go out upon a limb
If you know you'll fall off the tree
Or someone will just climb up higher
And the limb soon seems too low

Not everyone can be the best
Only one can have that glory
The rest of us will stare in awe
Or simply give up trying
