Intimidated by giants around me
They are. They stand.
They have achieved the heights
that I gaze upon with longing
mistakenly believing, behind my mind
That only clones
can be mountain climbers,
That the beautiful valley
has only one entrance
and only one valley
And thus despair whispers to me
Tells me to cast away my dreams
because they are doomed to mediocrity.
