Change the World

A Nove Otto poem

From when I was a little girl
They told me I could change the world.
They said I was significant,
My life would count in history,
The ages would remember me.
But now I know I simply can’t
Do everything they thought I’d do,
And I will never live up to
The blueprint they had for me planned.
