What I loved about this piece, apart from the fact that it is bold and shouts out loud, are these 1a, 1b things - the sub-divisions actually. Never witnessed them else where so they seemed to be impressive. Amazing write though! :D 4/5 stars!

This is...a funny short meditation, i'm guessing? This poem is pretty warming and fuzzy you know.

Haha. Yup. It's sort of an oddball piece. :)
