Feelings Of Insufficiency - Poem by RIC BASTASA

our feelings of insufficiency are real.
we do not fake it
we show it, but these feelings have something greater to say
than mere helpless insufficiency:

it reminds us, boy, we are human
subject to the limitations of who and what we are
boy, we only give what we can
the rest could be luck
our best need not be enough

sometimes we feel that what we get we do not really deserve
oh boy! what conceit? what a lack of this sense of humility?

all is fair, nothing more nothing less
there is no rush for success
there is always the right season, the right time for the right person.

later, it will be me, later it will be mine.
all i need, having exerted my best, is just pray and wait.
