Poetry: Less Than

By S. Scott Sanderson

It’s terrible to feel like you are less than
That you are not the same, you know
Eccentric, maybe even crazy
That is ok
But then they label you as less than
That you do not like
Measuring up as short
Leaves you wondering why
God would make you different than
Those you wish you were like.

I grew up in Kentucky, proud to be a country boy from Appalachia. Now married and living in the sunshine of Florida with my wife and dog (queen of the house). I am a scholar with advanced degrees in Geography and Religion. My inspiration comes from the beauty and uniqueness in the world around me.
