So when I walked home today
In the rain
I felt strangely happy.
And I realized
I loved walking in the rain.
But I love the drops of water
On my face
The sound of my untied shoelaces
Slapping the wet ground
The smell of the refreshed grass
And how there isn't a sound
Other than my slapping shoelaces
The dripping drops
And my slow sighs.
And when I came home
I felt like slamming my head on a dictionary
Because I realized
Procrastination gets you nowhere
And that I had two assignments due tomorrow.
But it's all cool and worked out
Because that's how I
And I think that last statement
Made me seem
Than my funny, geeky self.
