Artwork of  Drew Strouble

It's all gone wrong, I wish I knew
Where I had failed the test
I tried so hard, I gave my all
And what do I have left?

Ah, here I go, that fatalistic
Attitude of mine
I think I'll take a lazy walk
And forget this thing called time

This moment will not come again
I'll try to use it well
I'm wasting time just feeling bad
Where's my strength? I'm not this frail!

A new plan has just come to mind
I'm off, no time to rest
For nothing comes from feeling blue
And hoping for the best

Karen Shaw Matteson

There's only one corner of the
universe you can be certain of
improving, and that's your own self.
So you have to begin there,
not outside, not on other people.

~Aldous Huxley
