Don't say a prayer for me
It's very unnecessary 
Why would God send an angel, see
When you're right next to me?

Thought shepherding

Throughout the day 
all these thoughts pop up
in my mind and I try
to catch them but they fly 
away just before 
another thought stops
just for a second then is gone. 

Before bed I round them
up into my thought pen
But when I'm sleeping they 
Wander around and are gone
The next day.

Fall time

I go out in my green jacket
And the sky is gray
The air is cool 
And kids are out of school
The bus is crowded
The street is full
But there's a solitude
That fills me and my
insides feel good
I can feel it 
Coming up from the street 
through my shoes
the cheesiest feeling,
while walking down the street
Not the excitable soda pop kind
But the mellow yellow gray kind
Of happiness

Dr Seuss, Shakespeare 
and Eminem
Are very different, yet
Amazing men
Their greatness is hard to deny
And that greatness lies
In their ability to rhyme.

Drawing stuff

Sometimes I think
Of how some colors and shapes
And lines put in specific places
Can come together and create
complicated things like feelings and faces
And it's kind of amazing

Pursuit of excellence

My secondary school's motto was something along the lines of "pursuing excellence." (But disguised under the motto "daily giving service"). 

You were supposed to be super positive and motivated and all rounded, self disciplined etc.. And if you did community service you got points or something. At least some kind of credit.

I should unlearn that because in real life you don't get any credit for helping people. You probably just give up a lot of your time and that's it. But you make someone's life a bit better.

Yum cha

Every yum cha starts out ok. But eventually after the 1.5 hour mark it seems to stretch on forever... Until eternity and beyond...
