in denial that I'm in college

___________________________________________________________________

May you prosper, and may joy follow you every day of your life,

May calamity never strike you, and your sleep be always sweet and peaceful.

May my words remain with you and bear you ever up;

May my misdeeds be hidden, and bear you never down.

May they say of you, “They are greater than their teacher,”

“Their deeds are greater in number and in worth.”

Farewell, my beloved;

Go now, and surpass me.

Aw, thanks! I actually wrote

Aw, thanks! I actually wrote it in the style most of the poetry in the Bible is written in, using parallelism.

Like everything else you

Like everything else you write, this is very very well written and "fancy".  Fancy is the best word I can come up with off the top of my head, and I'm too lazy to pull up the thesaurus.

I can definitely see how this is similar to parts of the bible...for a second i thought it was XD  I like how it sounds so prophetic and fantasy-esque.  XD I'm not good with words lol.

I like being fancy. Fancy is

I like being fancy. Fancy is fun. Thank you so much for commenting! I am smiling and I have fuzzies in my heart and I too am not good with words any later than nine o'clock lol

(you're actually really good with words, you're probably also sleep-deprived so don't sweat it)

Not all teachers, but there

Not all teachers, but there exist good people who could certainly say this.

I had a certain character in mind when I was writing this, though—a man who did evil deeds but ended up helping his brother raise two children. In my headcanon he taught them everything they needed to know, and prayed hard that they would be better people than him.

As it turned out, they were. They were absolutely amazing.
