Just recently

I’m amused 

that

I have opportunities

which were not opportunities before

which appeared to be road blocks

obstacles to be knocked

out of the way

off with their heads

But now

somehow

what once was

is

no longer

and so I am faced

with the challenge 

to reinvent myself

in order to meet the challenge

that I never knew

existed

That Spirit

Currently holding

that spirit

of optimism

I found it somewhere

between the front and back of

my skull

not quite in the middle

but always

negotiating

its place

because after all

it is

a spirit

and it does not belong

to me

It knows when I’m happy

motivated by something

outside of myself

and it laughs because

just because

it exists

and my desire for it

comes and goes

sometimes I desire

sadness

or anger in the morning

at the beginning

what should have been

the end of it

and alas

as it is with everything else

that does not

belong to you

to be continued . . . . .

LSAT Blues

I got the LSAT Blues

because I

sat and stood

and ran

and dreamed

and printed

copy

after copy

of pages

of notes

of tests

of tests already taken

and taken

and took them

again

and again

I tried to win

until I got in

but then

they said

oh, sleepy head

go to bed

you can take

the

GRE

because it’s more freeeeeeee

or is it

really? . . .

just because

the LSAT is

no good

that’s my two cents

on luck

is there such a thing as

good luck and

bad luck

for

four hours

yes

a bad 4-hour drive in the rain

losing a loved one and going insane

for four hours

losing a loved one and feeling the pain

for four hours

laying in the sun

while enjoying light rain

for four hours

reading a book

enhancing your brain

four hours

sometimes

you just get lucky

and it doesn’t mean you’re smarter than the unlucky

ones

sometimes you do everything

right and

sometimes you didn’t know you did everything

wrong

finishing is being strong

so finish

and

do it

again

Crying is Passion

Crying is

passion

for life

Feeling is through tears

not skin

Feel the pain

the joy

the loss

the happiness

within

Crying is not a sin

Embrace yours

your feelings

just cause

you want to

just cause

you can

let yourself

go

feel free

grieve

remember

explore from the inside

out

don’t forget to shout

go all out

crying

is

passion

for

life

Slacktivism Hypothesis

Slacktivism is at best

a hypothesis

unless

it’s true that

youtube makes me

better

by improving my attention

span to 3 minutes

or less

that one minute

is enough

to create a sensation

a movement

that spreads

across the globe in 24 hours

and is imitated

not because it’s adored

but because

it’s imitated for the sake of being

imitated

Slacktivism is at best

at its best

because 30 seconds is only enough time

to finish my most important thought

which may never come to me

if I only get three minutes

to remember

what everyone soon forgets

the fantastic

the funny

the adorable

the phenomenons

people remember the mundane

people idolize that or

who

which

no longer

exists

the only thing that exists

is you

after 3 minutes

when everything is paused

and you are forced to choose

between the dilemma 

of

creating

yourself

or watching

others create

that’s why slacktivism

is at best

the best hypothesis

for why

you should not be inspired

by anything

except yourself

because

who can do that

better

than

you

?
