For who am I


For who am I,
But tiny speck,
And what can I say,
That hasn't been already said
Save this
That I am alive
Because
I am willing to
Face life
And
Fight fears.

  9. I just read some Dr. Seuss to my kids. This reminds me of that. Because of the speck, first. Obviously it's not rhyming and sing-song-y, but it imparts a really big message in a really small space. Great job.

  13. great advice - face life and fight fears. And, I like that it is couched within "what I have done" rather than "what you should do." I shall try to remember that method.
