I WANT IT ALL

I WANT IT ALL
SO I DON’T
FEEL SO SMALL
THERE SEEMS SO MUCH
BUT NOT ENOUGH

MY FRIENDS 
WHOM 
I HAVE A LOT
HAVE A LOT
BUT
NOT IT ALL
ALSO WANT IT ALL
NOT TO BE SMALL

MY TIME IS 
ALSO NOT ENOUGH 
TO USE IT ALL TO SHOP
AND TO BUY NEW STUFF
BUT TO MANY OF US
LIFE IS STUFF
AND THAT IS ALL
IF YOU DON’T WANT 
TO BE SMALL

MY APARTMENT IS 
SMALL 
AND ALL DOES NOT FIT
MY CLOSETS ARE FULL
AND MY STORAGE HAS QUIT 
ONCE 
FORCING ME 
TO CHOOSE 
BETWEEN A SMALL ROBOTIC ICE CREAM MACHINE 
AND 
DIGITALLY LIT TENNIS SHOES
WHAT A PREDICAMENT

SO MANY SIZES 
SO MANY SHAPES 
SO MANY COLORS 
SO MANY FACES
SO LITTLE ROOM
SO LITTLE TIME 
IT 
DOESN'T SEEM FAIR
AND IT 
DOESN’T EVEN RHYME

LIFE IS TOUGH
IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE SMALL
IT’S HARD TO KEEP UP
WITH SMALL FRIENDS 
LARGE FRIENDS
FAMILY
YOURSELF 
SOCIETY 
AND ALL
