Nature is a hermit, who won’t open up to anything. I am trying to be friendly to the cat, but he runs away every time I get near, because he is a hermit. That’s why nature is simply trying to oppose me.

I, too, am not opening up to others because I prefer a private life. But, against my wishes, my family and nature force me to go outside when they need to. Someday, they will stop and save money and I will too.

I am a person fighting for the right to not be kicked out of the house after graduation, because I need a college degree before that happens. But if I don’t go to college and learn, I really will be on my own after graduation. My mother is thinking about kicking me out of the house because she thinks I am a threat to my sister.

But I am not, and that’s why I am fighting for that very right. If nature sides with my equally stubborn mother, there’s just nothing I can do. This is one of the reasons why Nature is such a hermit.

What I am going to start saying now is HOMELESS POWER. I hope some people who are homeless side with me and overrun nature and slums. We might even overrun my stubborn mother, who won’t let me live with her after I graduate Senior High.

I will do my best with the snow and rain, and someday we shall overcome our predicaments. If my stubborn mother decides to kick me out, I will say, “HOMELESS POWER.” I will side with the weather and rain down the suffering on my stubborn parents. They will learn their lesson eventually.
