Not A Care In the World



I have painted a picture of a ghost
Upon my kite,
And hung it on a tree.
Later, when I loose the string
And let it fly,
The people will cower
And hide their heads,
For fear of the God
Swimming in the clouds.
--Amy Lowell

I failed.

It doesn't matter

It doesn't matter to me at all.

I no longer care.
