Shall I compare thee to a summer breeze?
Such a sweet drink should not be downed in haste
So refreshing, like a dip in the sea
How I deeply desire your smooth taste

The coffee pot starts and begins to brew
Your scent fills the room and it smells so fine
How can I pick just one to mix with you?
So many flavors to use and combine

I sit on my porch in the sun and think
I think I am finally calm and sane!
But soon my mug sits cold and in the sink
Your amazing taste is all that remains

But there is hope that lifts my spirits up
Tomorrow I can have another cup!

My mom and I like to sit on the porch and drink coffee. It's a time to relax! It was originally a sonnet assignment for school but I liked it so I thought I might as well put it on here.

“We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”- dr suess

"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."
— John Green
