This is What Success Looks Like

And, it isn’t shiny.

Success is going to law school,

Luggage a backpack,

And coming home after 7 hours,

To study arabic, Finnish, and 4 other languages.

And going to to pick up two weighty packages,

Head back, attend to Ms. Mercy,

Play time!

Answer calls of lonely friends, while making dinner.

Eat and breathe,

Homework calls!

Read read read, write, answer questions and summarize!

Try to figure out the printer,

Yaaay! Print sounds.

11 at night.

Prep to do it again

Play with kitty again

so she doesn’t hate me.

Curlers to keep my hair unknotted.

And sleep before I know I’m in bed.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
