The meanderings of a mind
midterms and lessons learned
The sky was dark and clouded over. I was sure that it was
night. My alarmclock screamed in my ear, no that isn't
right. I hate when my alarm clock is possessed by some
evil spirit and wakes me up before noon. On my knees I
looked out the window. There were people scurrying to
class. Their coats bundled around them, chins buried in
coats. It's not here yet. It can't be winter. Yesterday
I wore short sleeves. Even through the class of the window
the wind was biting into me.
My to do list keeps getting longer. I can't catch up with
life. Sooner or later it's going to end, but do I really
want that? A test to take, a paper to write, I miss my
baby's blue eyes.
The sweet little girl is crawling now and talking some but
not to me. I haven't been home in a while, when I go she
shies away. A test to take and a paper to write, I remind
myself I wanted this day.
