please do not force me

to raise my hand,

I do not have the answer,

I do not understand;

I am only a speck,

and it all seems grand

to a person like me

who cannot withstand

a disdainful look,

a comment offhand,

for I have filled the void,

but I have filled it with sand.


We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.

Ernest Hemingway
