On making it big

You may never see your name in lights.

Or listed on Wikipedia.

And maybe I won’t either.

In a world of so called endless ‘possibility’,

The ‘possibility’ of celebrity is always present

But not always probable.

Nor is it a useful benchmark

For the value we bring to the world.

Going viral or getting famous

May be easier today on social media

But counting likes can be an insidious distraction

From doing work that is truly valuable

And not just popular.
