Zero to One

*Disclaimer: I was looking through some old journals and found this poem. I don’t know what year I wrote it or even remember what triggered me to write it but thought it was too good and poignant to pass up.
If zero is a size 
Than that’s the size of my confidence.
I’m not smart enough to build a rocket.
I’m not fast enough to win a race.
I’m not good enough to be a professional dancer.
I’m not cool enough to make new friends.
But zero isn’t a size.
Zero shouldn’t even be a number.
Zero is nothing.
But I’m not nothing.
I’m someone.
I’m a daughter.
I’m a friend.
I’m a college student.
I’m a dancer.
I’m a dreamer.
I am someone.
And all the things I am
Add up.

Inquiring minds want to know...what do you think?
