Thursday, March 27, 2008


Today I am sixteen. How do I feel?
Almost the same, perhaps a bit more tame.
Tomorrow I write two exams, then three,
including one exam on Saturday.

Another day to me, same everything.
No presents, cakes, or birthday songs I need.
I’d rather sit here, quiet, studying.
Achievement fills a void too easily.

But then again, I’m happier today.
New hope and inner peace make life more bright.
So much to see, to feel, to do, to say!
What joyful days enclose this path called life!

I know there will be days I’ll wish were through.
But now the grass is green and skies are blue.


  1. My birthday's not really March 27, 2008, but the sonnet number (87) breaks down to my birthday (8/7)!

  2. Happy Belated B-day Mike!

    Happy Birthday to you,
    Happy Birthday to you!

    (someone else continue on, so we'll be singing together!)

  3. Happy Birthday to Mi-ike,
    Happy Birthday to you!

    (...nobody went I did.)


A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.

I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

- Emily Dickinson
