My name is Sarah
I live on the edge of nowhere
Somewhere between my dreams and my reality
My age doesn’t apply
I’m growing older every second
Yet losing an eternity every time I grow older
I’ve been through years of notes in a class
And of slightly more than failing attempts at perfection
I’ve suffered through long miles
I’ve dove into deep, dark, and familiar puddles
My life can be summed up in a word
It’s all I know.
It’s all I can do.
I can say that I’ve been
A member of every possible club
A student involved in all there is
A volunteer at one local organization to another
Overloaded... and for what
I can tell you every thing
But I’d only be trying.
If try is all I do
If my success is limited
But I continue to try
Is that enough?
Would you take me?
Or do I need to continue?
Must I drown before I can be welcomed to your exclusive club?
Then will I be accepted?
