I am not enough

to fill the void.

A yawning maw,

a gaping hole,

inadequacy piled upon inadequacy


and I

do not have the mass

to shore up against this tide

of weakness compounded

year after year until they got here.

I am battered.

I am broken.

I am not enough.

Small voice calling;

creatures crawling.

Hopes are falling.

She’s left bawling,

Must stop lolling

and start hauling.


poem- so much to learn July 8, 2015

The university library stacks are wall to wall

floor to ceiling

so much knowledge between the covers

so much learning hard won

no time

to ever try to read it all.
