Z is for Zero



Sometimes, I feel I am zero.

That I am nothing.

Worthless, empty, an entity with no value.


Sometimes, I wish to be more.

A five, an eight, even a negative ten!

Would be better than zero.


Sometimes, so you tell me,

You feel like zero.

You cannot see your value, your talents, your everything.


There is no way you are zero.


And now, I realize,

That neither of us are zeros.

That there is something to the both of us we had not known before.

I know that, now.

When you are added to me,

Together, our zeros become Infinity.
