There are those of us who don’t quite measure up.

Plagued by insecurity and self doubt

Limited talent and faltering in self discipline at times

Often late (with a good excuse though)

Stumbling over every step, stumbling over our own feet.

But we’re trying.  We make do the best way we know how

About the only thing we have going for us is that we’re willing

Willing to improve, to learn, to grow into a less clumsy member of the team.

Sure, there’s room for improvement and we won’t deny it

But there’s something to be said about those who know they fall short

Yet show up anyway.

Those who go after dreams they really have no business chasing after

Filling in shoes many sizes too large for them.

Not all of us could be cool kids

But what we lack in swag, we make up for in courage.
