The naked trees fray
Like her split ends
The skies turn grey
Like the last of her joyfulness
So surely it’s
Her own decay
As she stares at joyless, Greenless grasses
And remembers how it felt running Barefooted

The leaves chip off
Like her summery nail polish
The cool air wafts
Reminding her of its sunlessness
She’d hoped she could
But learn she cannot
While in sunless, windowless Classes
And while remembering how freedom Tasted

Favorite Quote:
“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”

― Dalai Lama XIV
