The Difference

March 18, 2012
What am I?
A nothing.
What will I be?
Maybe something.

What are you?
A something.
What will you be?
Something better.

There’s not much hope.
Not for me.
You, however, have the world
at your mercy.

You’re lucky.
Do you even realize?
People love you.
They hate me.

You will go places.
I’ll forever be in your shadow.
You have a plan.
I just have a dream.

Guess that’s the difference.
The difference between you and me.

What a beautiful poem! I can feel the slight one-sided struggle against someone (or something) else~! B-E-A-Utiful!
