I woke this morning with sleep in my eyes
A cloudy sky- yet still I rise
I see her smile and I can’t help but smile back
It seems I only see her in class
Motivation to come to philosophy, alas!
Today is a good day because I am eager to breathe
So many days passed; it’s hard to believe
So close to the end of my story in this second home
So soon the world– I will roam
I do not wish to endlessly drift
I feel a weight in this world that I’m ready to lift
There are so many things I cannot wait to do
I write these words; thinking of you
Where will your days take you?
How far could it be?
You have a cough; just like me
I feel this place has changed its face
It is more than just a way to fill the space
The rest of my life begins with each moment passed
I woke today, happiness the task
Tomorrow may rain on my ideal intentions
But a little rain is worth nothing more than a poetic mention
Feel the cool drops as they splash on your face
Stick out your tongue
How does it taste?
Run and never be afraid to get wet
Reach your arms to the sky
No time to regret.
