anything else is a bonus

i have come to accept
the idea
i may never
walk on mars
i may never be
the first astronaut
president of the united states
i most likely
won’t star in a movie
or write a bestseller
or discover atlantis

that’s okay
i found my voice
and a handful
of people
take pleasure in it
i have raised
two monsters
into a passing semblance
of human
made some life long
discovered family
doesn’t mean blood
blood doesn’t mean

anything else is just a bonus
