Centimeter

May 20, 2012
It seems like we are all just on one line
Each of us
A centimeter
A metric unit of length that is
Equal to one
Hundredth
Of a meter
Waiting for the moment were we become important
Waiting

Waiting


Waiting
STOP WAITING
Life isn’t about

Finding yourself
It’s about

Creating yourself
But no
You’re waiting for life to find you
Not realizing that
Your measurement is right in front of
Your eyes

You are you
No matter how much you want to change it
Or how much other people try and change your measurement
You are right there

But you’re not creating

Not finding


Just waiting
What’s with all this waiting
When all you have to do
Is realize
That you are important
Even though you may sound small

A centimeter
One out of a hundred
Each one is important
And that one is you
