As we grasp them by the blade or the handle.

because she gives the test first,
the lesson afterword.

but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door,
that we do not see the ones which open for us.

show me and I may remember;
involve me and I'll understand.

even when no one is watching.

are tiny matters
compared to what lies within us.

It gives you something to do,
But it does not get you anywhere.

you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
