Middle of In Between

©1994 by Susan Noyes Anderson, Lollipops Magazine

I am stuck
in the middle
of in between.

My eyes are not blue,
but they’re not really green.

If you’re short, I look tall.
If you’re tall, I look short.

I am neither the best nor
the worst at my sport.

I’m much more than a baby,
much less than a teen…

Smack dab
in the middle
of in between.

(Note: These are not my grandchildren but just
Flicker photos selected to illustrate the poem.)

Very cute poem Sue..I'm sure many adults who are the middle kiddo will relate to this!

No matter what age, we're all stuck in between something.

I always wanted to be short, yet I am not tall. I am somewhere in the middle too. Sometimes its good, but sometimes we middle people want to be something special. Thats the trick of growing up - to find your specialty and make the most of it!

Grandma Honey said...

Well I for one, definitely know these are not your grandchildren. (yours are much cuter)no offense to the ones here from Flicker.

There have been times I think we have all felt stuck in the middle. :(

I am definitely a 'middle of in between'. This was wonderful Sue.

Your posts are always so marvelous...they just make me heart feel ... ummm... musical? Okay, that's a bad "M" word, but my brain is not working today!

Thanks for linking.

A+

I just read your last two posts, and you amaze me with your versatility, my friend. I know that drug post came from a tender spot in your heart, and that's why it was so fantastic.

I know they are flicker photo's but the picture with the eyes is cool.

the middle is not a bad place to be...i guess its all depending on what you are stuck between...smiles.

What a cute poem about being in-between things! I love the way you can pull something so whimical such as this out of thin air or at least it seems so to me. You're really clever with words. =D
