The Balloon

As a balloon 
           filled with helium 
                          upward toward 
                                       the sky,
                         it gets larger 
                         and larger  
               as the atmospheric pressure 


               And the helium 
           e x p a n d s.

    it gets so LARGE that it
            e    x    p    l    o    d    e    s.

Remember this 
the next time you feel arrogance                                  (fl o a t)
welling up inside of you, and you                                (fl oa t)
                                                                         flo at
and eventually

e    x   

                       l                   o

Donn Lee

I love to read and write. Professionally, data science, technology, and sales ops are my thing. In my non-professional life, I aspire quite simply to be a good person, and encourage others to do the same. For those who care, I test as INFJ in the MBTI.
