"I'd formulated a plan. If you can define a plan as 'a loose sequence of manifestly inadequate observations and conjectures, held together by panic, indecision, and ignorance'? If so, it was a very good plan."

I am from the classic books I’ve never read,

But were rather read to me

I am from a useless pulley in a tree,

Which was never used to hang laundry

I am from the murky caney pond that isn’t for swimming,

But somehow I ended up in

I am from warm pineapple casserole,

Which is good, despite being a casserole

I am from old nostalgic e-mails,

That are still archived on my account

I am from my worn out mattress on the floor,

Which, in my opinion, is the perfect place

I am from an old rusty shovel,

That I use to break into our shed

I am from the giant truck tire,

Which belongs to a truck I’ve never seen

I am from the plow sand at the end of our driveway,

Which is was better than any beach

I am from childish journals on my over packed shelf,

That in retrospect seem risque

I am from a strange but wonderful life,

Where normal is not

‎"I’m learning how to drown out the constant noise that is such an inseparable part of my life. I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world: I run my world." - Beyoncé

Another great poem... :)
I love it...
