Poetry – Living in the shadows

Living in the shadows


I am living in the shadows of giants,

Daunted by the very breath they breathe,

Yet still persevering

Despite the mediocrity.


I strive to at least attempt the impossible;

To see those giants as inspiration

And not an undefeatable foe.


All life is but a challenge.

We are instructed to be strong,

To be steadfast and brave.

And it is hopelessly brave

To even try!
