i used to get frustrated at how long it took me to finally understand an idea or concept
that's when i learned perseverance.

later, i got frustrated at how long it took everyone else to finally understand the same idea
that's when i learned patience.

now i've learned to enjoy the constant interplay between people and ideas, learning and growing
and that has taught me happiness.


i stand erect
i prepare for the onslaught
it's started to rain and i forgot my umbrella
