January [22] 2017 - the little things

I've grown a little
been shown a little less than
what I needed to pass all of
life's quizzes,
but my existence has been a test
and every day I breathe is a testament
to where the will and the way converge
and the rest will be if it's meant to.

I was sent to
mean a little more to life
than my intent to
be all I needed to be
realized fulfilled entailed. 
With a little time, I embodied willing.
With a little trial, I was filling half empty
to overflowing,
overwhelming and never knowing
what the little I could do would
mean for more than me.
But it's the little things that comprise the core of me.
