Favorite Quote:
"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare


There are so many of us in the world

We never all have a chance to crash into all of each other

There are some we will just never know

But isn't it funny how we are all alike?

In some small way, we all are

We all get in cars to drive to the supermarket

Or we walk

But we all go to the supermarket

Even if the supermarket is your neighbor's backyard

We all wash dishes, whether I use Dawn

And you use Palmolive, come on

You know you wash dishes, too

We all start off as babies and then grow up

We all have teethed and learned how to go potty

We all need food to survive

We all sleep

And we all end up with bags or dark circles

When we don't, unless you're just exempt

From that rule of humans aren't nocturnal

I think of all I don't know in the world

I see you through a window and I don't know you

But I do know something about you

You're human

(If you're related to ET, kindly keep that information to yourself)

You have a heart and you bleed blood

Maybe you have two kidneys or just one, but we are all alike

We all meet a guy or a girl and think

That person is everything and everything

Only to be greatly disappointed when they

Turn out to be just another thing

I don't know you, but I've felt your pain

And, you know, there really aren't that many

Differences between us

We learn more about each other just by being ourselves

And so I hope you know, somewhere, wherever you are

There is someone like you, sitting down to

Write on a piece of paper

Or papyrus

Or a leaf
