Favorite Quote:
Under the bludgeonings of chance / My head is bloody but unbowed...
I am the master of my fate / I am the captain of my soul

William Ernest Henly, Invictus

It's cold inside
It's cold outside.
Think about that, what does it mean?

Open on up, spread the warmth;
What's the point, all my efforts get thwarted.
Insider of here, it's cold as can be,
Somebody come put some warm on me.

People and news make the world look so cold
I say probably not, but people need to be bold
Roast like coffee warming up the body
Doing deeds unseen no matter time nor place.

So back to the start - what does it mean?
It's only if you make it so, so
Don't worry, open up and have a great season.

The author's comments:
Written for my school's literary magazine whose prompt for December was anything about the cold.

The point of the question at the beginning is to make people think is the cold physical cold caused by the weather, or are they "cold" in the sense of being rude and insensitive, etc.
