Haiku Poetry

Sometimes it’s so hard

To keep fighting for your “dreams”

And, as I get old

It’s, increasingly

More difficult, yet urgent

To feel accomplished

Please don’t get me wrong

I am very privileged

I understand that

But, I also feel

That I always come up short

Destined to only

Stand just to the side

While others take the spotlight

It’s…disheartening.
