in lieu of hope

April 13, 2012

the earth persists in its beauty
        and i must in my gratitude
pray for such humility
        and an optimistic attitude

(and for words that are more than platitude)

    Reminds me of a classic song w/ the lyrics, “Positive attitude, a grateful heart, that’s the way…”

    Just kidding. I love this one for its simplicity.

      I picture us,
      standing in front of the student body and think
      “who the hell was that!?”
      you have quite the influence on me;
      I treasure it.
