Learning is predicated on discovery
if we can foster the latter
then there’ll be
a natural love for the former.

God, I Need Another Life

20140219-203813.jpg
God, I need another life,
Not because this one seems unfair, though
I’ve witnessed death, hunger and despair.

Not because, I’ve lived meagerly or seen
My share of injustice,
You know, there’s
Plenty of that to go around.

I need another life
Because, the one
I have, I foresee that
time is running out.

I have so much I want to learn,
And, there’s simply not enough time
In one mans life to grasp it all!

Hannah Swims

Hannah is learning
to swim, her fears
were dispelled one
day.

With life vest on-
she decided to
conquer the waters
scary grip.

Her vicissitude
for heroics,

in the face of her
natural instincts
to shy away from
entering the pool,

strengthened her
resolve to
finally plunge
in.

Now, whenever
we swim-

Hannah
like a little
turtle-

paddles
incessantly.

Keeping herself
busy
from one
end of the pool
to the other-

as we marvel
at her newly
acquired,
pollywog
skill.

A is for Apple, ah, ah Apple.
Hannah softly sings along.
Every morning
she memorizes her words,
as she learns
her ABC song.
