Too Loud   Leave a comment

The world is too loud,
Like a crowd of construction workers
Jack-hammering my head constantly.
Taking out the floor beneath me
With their dissonant cacophony.

Still Waiting   Leave a comment

one and a half months
six weeks
forty-five days
one hundred and eighty hours
seven unopened presents
and too much time waiting

Change My View   Leave a comment

Changing your mind should be viewed
As a virtue and not a vice
A free flow of ideas is the price we pay
For the privilege of being challenged.

The gift of being told we are flawed,
We are wrong, we are imperfect.
We crave this advice, we need it to grow.
Impressing upon ourselves the advice of our peers
In an attempt to be a better person,
Creating a better world for others.
