I want to be daring. I want to be fierce. I want to be brave. I want to be strong.

But alas, I am nothing more than a blade of grass… one of many.

I want to be someone’s everything. I want to be something special. I want to matter.

Instead, I am just another cog, in the infinite turning wheel of this thing called life.

I want to rise to the occasion, take a risk, take a chance, make a change. But how can I stand out? When I am just one grain of sand on an endless beach.

I want to scream from the mountain tops. I want to rage against the machines. I want to run wild and free with the mustangs.

Yet, only  whisper escapes my lips, and my feet are encased in quicksand.

Maybe someday I will be braver, stronger, even more, fierce, but for now . I take comfort in the single victory that I was daring enough to write this poem.
