Thing: Super Short Story #465

Super Short Story #465: Thing

He dreamt of accomplishing
one big thing
that will bring him
fame and fortune
forever and ever…

forgetting that
one truly big thing
is truly made of
many small things,
many other accomplishments
over many years’ efforts.

Thus, he looked on for that
one big thing,
while doing nothing,
not even a small thing
to get to any big thing.
