One Stanza Poem O171

To grow
As an individual –
I must do more
As an individual –
Unhindered by others on teams –
Who aren’t up to my standards

Notes to this poem…

Truth when you can do better than the whole team combined cause they limit you to their standards and don’t even realize how low their ceiling is!

The O-series of poems are one stanza poems composed before I got onto writing haiku and tanka, and short poetry while in action or traveling by select means like plane or ferry. These poems are 3-9 lines long with at least one rhyming couplet, and not of the short forms just mentioned. For the sake of elegance, I just called the collection One.
