we are bigger

we are all born small

yet we grow to be so tall,

and we are bigger.

We are bigger than school bullies.

We are bigger than our insecurities.

We are bigger than teachers who ignored our raised hands.

We are bigger than the reasons for which we stand.

We are bigger than parents who wouldn't believe.

We are bigger than friends who lie and deceive.

We are bigger than piles of words to study.

We are bigger than only getting a "B".

We are bigger than a failed test.

We are bigger than our own mess.

We are bigger than a mistake.

We are bigger than the choice to be fake.

We are bigger than a first date.

We are bigger than a soul mate.

We are bigger than a rejected crush.

We are bigger than a drug induced rush.

We are bigger than a broken heart.

We are bigger than a world that's falling apart.

We are bigger than an impossible dream.

We are bigger than every frustrated scream.

We are bigger than an ocean of tears.

We are bigger than our greatest fear.

We are bigger than everyone who ever told us no.

We are bigger than all the places we will go.

We are bigger than an open stage.

We are bigger than a silly facade.

We are bigger than a popularity contest.

We are bigger than someone else's best.

We are bigger than a dead man's statue.

We are bigger than the plane from which we parachute.

We are bigger than physical pain.

We are bigger than emotional gain.

We are bigger than giving up.

We are bigger than love.

But never too big

to do without.

All I know is

we have the potential to be.

So, why don't we?

The End
