Coming to Terms

What a great way for Joey to come back! How'd you all like it? I loved it :)

Okay time for my new poem of the day! Its just a little something about realizations in life. Please enjoy ;)

Coming to Terms

I am slowly coming to terms.
Slowly coming to terms with my life
How meaningless it is.
Slowly coming to terms with my work
I've really done nothing yet.
Slowly coming to terms with my existence
I do not belong here.

Slowly, I am coming to terms
with the world
with people
and yet nothing.

Slowly, as I am coming to terms
I find myself
into the background,
the scenery,
the backdrop of life.

I see myself
accomplished in my age
But where does it lead me?
I shall fade with time.
No, I won't be Bill Gates
or the inventor of a telephone.

Send me back to Einstein's age
and I will be as much help to him
as I am to a dead man.
Edison wouldn't benefit
from knowledge that I have.
And I surely cannot write
better than Hemingway or Poe

No, my name
will not go down
in the history books.
My impact on the world
will be limited:
personal relations at best.

I am coming to terms.

This poem is very heartfelt, and there are portions of it that really spoke to me because I feel the same way sometimes.

One thing is that I don't think you should come to terms yet! You still have a lot of life ahead of you, and you are one of the most intelligent people I have ever met. You could still end up doing something amazing for the world, and end up in a history book for it! I believe you can.
