I Am Ordinary

Rating: 5.0

I Am Ordinary

I have no great skill
For I am not a learned man
No great feat to share
None other than ordinary
I have no real tallent
What I've ever shown
Was never really mine alone
So why is then
That when the wind blows
I feel it too
When a flower, flowers
I also bloom
When A tree sways
Or an infant sings
My ordinary becomes
In all the things
I never Knew
It mattered not
When I saw true
No great skill
No degree
To see beyond
The ordinary

Nothing more than ordinary... without the ordinary the world could not survive because the world is 'ordinary'!

A special poem written by a very special poet yet one who remains modest and humble. Excellent work as always. Best wishes, Andrew
