I stand upon the shoulders of giants.
They're not all in the past.
They're not all well-known.
They're not all adults.
They're not all the same, in profession, status, personality, or inspiration.
I stand upon the shoulders of giants, many of them from my own generation, many of them just beginning to bloom.

Wow, sorry this is a bit late, I was looking over a few things and stumbled back upon this, and...wow. My first comment was kinda lame, but still very true, I can relate to it easily. It's shorter in length, but still full of meaning. I congratulate you, on both your amazing work and the Editor's choice mark you got :)

Oh, I forgot to put in a description.

This poem is a sort of tribute to some of bloggers who are  my age, and all of the Teeninkers.
