There’s more to life than me.

Saw a feather on the ground today.

Remembered that there’s more to life than I can see.

When I’m trapped inside this bubble that is my world…

Sometimes I am unaware that there’s more to life than me.

If there is a third world I must exist in the second.

Seems I’m neither here nor there.

Living on a stairway that leads neither up or down.

Sometimes wondering how long the second world will be around.


  1. Good job Kelvin! I really enjoyed reading your poems. Keep writing:)

  2. I am so proud of you Kelvin! These are two more I can share with the rest of the school!

  3. What a wonderful job, Kelvin!!!!

  6. Kelvin,

    You are beginning to become in touch with being in the present…everything that happens happens in “the now:)”
    You should check out some of of Eckart Tolle’s books…I can bring you one to school…reading it will expand your mindfulness:)
    I am immensely proud of you and honored to be one of your teachers!
    Peace and Presence
