SMALL THINGS

By Edwin Dubose

Most of us miss out on life’s big prizes

The winning lottery numbers

The Oscars, the Tonys, the Emmys, The Pulitzer, the Nobel

Bust most of us have forgotten that we are all eligible

For Life’s small pleasures, which are also winners

Lunch at Bishop Cosgrove

A cold 40-ounce, a kiss, a hug, perfect weather

Waking up from a good night’s sleep

So don’t fret about copping life’s grand awards

And enjoy its tiny delights.

Cause there’s plenty for all of us.
