Something in the Distance

By Paige Hussey, age 14

There is something

In the distance

It mocks me,

Seeing as I struggle to

Reach out to it

It watches my frustration

But it does nothing

It only stays in its

Far away place

I begin to think

I am getting closer,

Closer … Closer …

Then it hits me

I have gotten nowhere

I’ve worked so hard to

Make a change,

To get remotely close

But I am still where I began

Disappointment fills me

But I push myself to try once more

To reach that something in the distance.
