I’m thankful for family
people who care about me
that will help me get
as smart as Einstein
Love, why are you so complicated?
Whenever I feel you, I don’t know how to say that I do.
When I try to express you, the words leave my mouth with each nerve-wracking breath.
When I have nothing to do,
you could say that I’m like an apple rotting.
I’m as bored as a seagull sitting all day who can’t
catch a fish.
