if you are curious. I can also write a poem about most anything, so if you have a topic you want written about, just ask. :) (I hate the 250 characters thing!)

I've been jumping from the tops of buildings...

Through thick and thin and back again
and everywhere with you, I’ve been.
Dirty and pink and plaid and worn,
with soles and sides and laces torn,
I’ve traveled with you and your kin.

I’ve climbed and Alaskan mountain,
walked near the Pacific Ocean,
and led you through fields full of corn,
through thick and thin and back again.

I have seen monuments, and then
walked down the mall in Washington
D.C. and seen where oaths were sworn,
but now it is the time to mourn,
for others’ journeys must begin
through thick and thin and back again.
