To Be Little or Big?

by LisaMay

Little can be big,
when ambition’s used wisely;
big can belittle,
when it becomes bullying
in the hands of a small mind.

Tanka more usually concentrate on a scene from nature. This contest prompt allowed entrants to write a poem about anything, so I have written about tendencies in human nature.
