The Hardest Battle


.

“To be nobody but yourself

in a world which is doing

its best day and night

to make you like everybody else

means to fight the hardest battle

which any human being can fight

and never stop fighting.”

.

~  E. E. Cummings

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

unique

just you

like nobody else

one of a kind

individual

Haiku:

clear azure blue skies

aurora borealis

this cold winter’s night

Poem:

.

so average that it hurts
been there, have the t-shirts
still seeking a unique niche
with class, no bawdy kitsch

the snobs feign indifference
the hick straight out of Deliverance
the middle class can’t afford to be rich
there is no bottom to the poor man’s ditch

blue is a color that I will not bleed
enough pocket money to buy some chicken feed
too lackadaisical or just too lazy to succeed
mother always called me her bad weed

I guess I’ll just have to be me
second cousin to the monkey in the tree
choosing to either agree or disagree
living a life happy, joyous and free
