Originality

I am not original-
No one really is.
To speak new words
Already spoke,
To write a story
Is to write it once over,
To think a thought
Once in minds before,
I am not unique
In my ideas and questions
Not shared by all
But a few
Is enough so that
One in a million means
Nothing among trillions

So what is this game?
The one that we play?
With word combinations
And ideas all mashed
Now building and building
On our before,
Our originality is not original
But it’s creative and new
And though people are
Not so unique
You know
They’re their own buildings of buildings
