In praise of smallness

Why are we always desiring to expand?
Why the glamour of being large, powerful, and of greater stature?
Why the rush to grow up?
Why the need to hurry up and be at our peak?
Why the need to get better and improve NOW?

Why always lengthening and widening,
as if that were the only virtuous way?

Can't we just be still for a moment,
and notice the inescapable necessity of our smallness?

No, I think perhaps the "best" way includes all the directions,
all sizes,
all dimensions.

And that means we need to allow and appreciate our smallness,
alongside, before, and after,
