"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift; that's why they call it the present"

Is made of the cursive
Writing in my torn chemistry notebook
And the feathers that flew out of
The pillow fight we had in the midnight,
Is made of the little glow-in-the-dark
Stars on the ceiling and
The dry apricots that die (again) in
My stomach everyday
Is loved by the lazy strands of hair that kiss
My face and the old, faithful watch that always
Reminds that time needs respect- and will have it,
Is native to the cozy bathroom where
It is easy to doze off in the early morning
And to the annoying alarm clock that
Kills pretty and ugly dreams alike,
Banks on the courage that only a thick
Bar of snickers can confer and
On the last crumbs of chocolate that are
Clung on to, always, like a thread of hope,
Is stuffed like an obese teddy bear gifted
On my fifth birthday, with all the world
Its subtle virtues and sardonic viciousness,
Packed tightly inside a 48-kilo mass,
Is completed by the incomplete sentences
In our private conversations on paper chit
Later crafted into a rocket and flown in class and
Out-standing detention we received after that,
Therefore runs only on
The super-batteries of memories,
Quaint trivialities and the other I’s-
By itself, it’s just
Another lanky
Little alphabet
