Stephen Smith


I began blank, expressionless, palpably useless

My existence was without purpose or appreciation

Being part of whole; I lacked the uniqueness I desired

Patiently I waited as those before me were taken

Then tossed aside as insignificant debris.

My day came, my day to be used.

I remember the lasting impression it left on me,

I was forever changed, never to return to my old state.

Since then, I had been cherished, passed about, duplicated and studied.

I am your creation; I am what you choose me to be

It is your imagination that sets me apart.
