Favorite Quote:
"A great man is always willing to be little."
Ralph Waldo Emerson


When I wake up in the morning, and I roll out of bed,
I touch my feet to the hardwood floor.

I ponder the content of my dream,
Then I list off the things I have to do today.

Then I realize my day is just a blank sheet of paper.

Today, I can be colored, cut, ripped or folded.
Signed, sent, or drawn on.

But no matter what happens to me today,
Tomorrow I'll just be a blank sheet of paper.


The author's comments:
I feel that this poem reflects how I feel on a daily basis. No matter how bad my day was I know that I can simply start over the next day and make it better.
