Favorite Quote:
"Twenty years from now you will be more disapointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain


I am not here.

My body is

But my mind

Is not.

It has flown through the clouds

Over the moon

Far away

From the desk I sit at.

It has traveled through words

Soon to be written

Books soon to be read.

It has recounted the steps of

Yesterday

Thought about steps to be taken

Tomorrow.


It is a terrible time for it to have

Left me

When the teacher is talking about something

Important

But I can’t choose

When it leaves.

If it were closer than where it is now

I could pull it

Back

Like a fish reeled to the shore

By a hook.

But it is not closer

And pulling it back seems

Merely impossible.
