"I have a very pessimistic view of life. You should know this about me if we're gonna go out. You know, I - I feel that life is - is divided up into the horrible and the miserable. Those are the two categories, you know. The - the horrible would be like, um, I don't know, terminal cases, you know, and blind people, crippled. I don't know how they get through life. It's amazing to me. You know, and the miserable is everyone else. That's - that's - so - so - when you go through life - you should be thankful that you're miserable because you're very lucky to be miserable."

What the grass perhaps feels

A leaf daintily falling down can
End the frail life of a grass blade,
And the gentle pressure of a foot
Can break its brittle bones.
The grass can feel the slither
Of a snake approaching his prey
And the steady spiraling of our Earth
That stakes our feet to ground.
Perhaps the grass lives in another world
Where every action is magnified and enhanced.
Perhaps it sees with invisible eyes
And gathers information unknown to man
Never will we know what wonders
Lie beneath the land
That only grass has mind to experience
And hides away beneath its breast

Interesting. This work is very creative. You should continue to write from an object's point of view. It makes the reader image, and even create a world unknown.
