I just want there to be leaves already, gosh darnit.
And I have the worst case of senioritis I have ever experienced.

Lives continue to their end.
I am one of them.
Am I unhuman because I keep moving,
because I keep walking?
Or am I human for knowing
I have a limited time to wander?
I shed a tear,
I wiped my cheeks,
and when I saw my friends I smiled
the least genuine smile imaginable.

The TA snatched my homework away at the door
before I had any time to edit it.
Now she's going to see that I've been looking at my friend's answers
and give me a big fat 0
because I decided to sleep last night
because I've been so tired this week.
I liked pushing my limits
but my body is tired
and I don't understand inorganic chemistry.
I don't understand why oxidation needs to happen
and free oxygen radicals roam around
and corrode us
and we age.
Why does that need to happen?
I understand that oxygen is part of our energy currency.
That it's in glucose and we use it to make ATP.
But I don't understand why we can't all just
A little bundle of energy that runs for no reason
that chases that soccer ball like it's all that matters in life
like being as good as Caleb Hougesen means more
than whether your team wins or looses,
and you'd pick your best friends
instead of the best players
because already you knew you'd rather loose with people you liked

You betcha I know it.
This is the corniest piece I've written
since I was twelve and completely smitten
with another ginger in my class
who said I couldn't be his lass.
I think I know only a little more
about love than I did when I was four.
Maybe that's the way everyone feels
and girls just go on dates for free meals.
I love the guy that I'm with now though;
he is the best guy that I know.
I'm not sure how I know I do
I'm just glad he loves me too.
