Poetry – I am destined to be big!?

I am destined to be big!?

I am destined to be big!

But that’s OK

I’m going on a diet soon.

With exercise

I’ll soon be back to normal.

I am soon to be big!

As my words

Elicit ecstasy in the

Correct reader

And I am propelled.

When we are long

In the ground

We are not so big anymore.

The worms

Bring us down to size.

I am destined to be big!?

As an indie writer who writes what he chooses and does not court popularity I am sometimes saddened by my present lack of success. I would like a larger readership for my efforts. To have words unread feels sad. Yet I know that all it takes is a flight of fancy – one book to capture imagination and go off on a wave of euphoria – I am in danger of becoming big.

As a human being who has reached that age where my metabolism has fallen but my appetite has not I am in that state where my weight has increased. I have to contain myself to prevent my growth becoming too great. I am in danger of becoming big.

Even the most commercially successful and the most enormously obese are all brought down, in time, to become the same basic skeletons in the ground.

I'd like to hear from you...
