Hi, anyone who’s reading this! Well, for starters, I LOVE cats. That’s the most common fact about me. I’m an avid reader, I like listening to music, and I like to joke. A LOT. Anyway, thanks for stopping by!!

This is one of my favorite quotes. It’s by Steve Jobs:

HERE’S TO THE CRAZY ONES.
THE MISFITS. THE REBELS. THE TROUBLEMAKERS.
THE ROUND PEGS IN THE SQUARE HOLES.
THE ONES WHO SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY.
THEY’RE NOT FOND OF RULES.
AND THEY HAVE NO RESPECT FOR THE STATUS QUO.
YOU CAN QUOTE THEM, DISAGREE WITH THEM,
DISBELIEVE THEM, GLORIFY OR VILIFY THEM.
ABOUT THE ONLY THING YOU CAN’T DO, IS IGNORE THEM
BECAUSE THEY CHANGE THINGS.
THEY INVENT. THEY IMAGINE. THEY HEAL.
THEY EXPLORE. THEY CREATE. THEY INSPIRE.
THEY PUSH THE HUMAN RACE FORWARD.
MAYBE THEY HAVE TO BE CRAZY.
BECAUSE THE ONES WHO ARE CRAZY ENOUGH
TO THINK THAT THEY CAN CHANGE THE WORLD,
ARE THE ONES WHO DO.

WHAT???
You want me to leave
You want me to go
You want me to pack up everything
I’ve got from the life I live and know?

SERIOUSLY???
Now this is just ridiculous
Now this is just absurd 
If I could
I’d like to have a word

WAIT!!!
what are you doing with my stuff?
Why are you packing it up in boxes?
Hey, when’d that moving truck get here?
Oh, this has GOT be a series of paradoxes!

WHY!!!
are you trying to make me angry?
Are you trying to make me sad?
Now trust me when I say
You’ve REALLY made me mad!

ALRIGHT!!!
That’s it!
I’ve had enough!
I will not move
I refuse to leave this place I’ve roamed
For all my years of life
Come on guys, I mean. . .this is my home. . .

    This is AmAzInG. I don’t know how you did it, but you were able to summarize feelings about unwanted moving in one poem, AND also made it lighthearted and funny! Love it!
