Never Our Best

Been squinting at the sun

For far too long-

Waiting for the angels to

Tell me I’m wrong.

But a higher power has

Yet to come down,

And God is a word we speak when

No one else is around.

We are taught insignificance

From the very first,

So to be the best we can

Is the very worst.

And whoever is up looks

Down on all the rest

We strive to be something, just

Never our best.
