With my trustee bottomless mug of coffee at my right elbow
I read and write and soak up the world through eyes
like two sponges on a newborn baby's face.
I let myself be a product of my environment
until I'm ready to make the change that in turn
alters the environment for someone else.
That will be the day that I will say
I've found the voice I've searched for
so thoroughly beside my greatest mate.
