“This week I've been reading a lot
and doing little work. That's the way
things ought to be. That's surely the
road to success.” -Anne Frank


Time is running out

Be a kid, scream and shout

Because one day you will miss the days you would pout

So still laugh at the funny shape of a single cloud

Be a kid who never doubts
