I smell the scent of pines.
I stand on tiptoes to catch more of this wonderful scent.
I am dreaming.
I wake up.
I take showers.
Feel the water rushing over my skin.
Each drop like tiny sparkling heartbeats.
I close my eyes and suddenly;
I’m standing in a field of flowers.
I listen to music.
The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Johnny Cash and many more.
They are the shit!
I can’t keep still and I sing along.
Every song of theirs: A genious hit.
I go out at night to the youth center.
To meet the friends of my youth.
To turn up the music.
To live freely.
To find you.
My heart beats for many things.
For sunsets and beaches.
For the whole wide world and what it teaches.
I gaze at the stars.
There are so many!
I get lost sometimes.
I can never get enough of this starry haze.
I spend my summers with friends.
We like to hang at the lake.
Those are my summer days.
During sleepless summer nights,
I enjoy being outside beneath the sky.
Beneath the full moon,
I feel alive.
And during those nights I am nocturnal,
I so often wish I could be eternal.
There is so much to see,
and so much to be,
but everything is simply too much,
even for me.
Though the winters are cold,
there’s so much warmth they hold.
The air I breathe is so thin and clear.
Cleansing my mind of all my fears and the voices I hear.
I let it all go.
I bury the stress of a year,
under the snow.
As I grow older,
I become much wiser, stronger and bolder.
I start to look back at days far behind,
and as I remember them,
I begin to smile.
I’m not only looking back,
I’m looking forward, too;
To having a family.
To creating a few little me’s.
And to passing on,
what I have learned and earned,
during my glory days.
when it’s time for me to go,
I won’t cry.
I will look back on all these days I got to spend,
and I will smile.
I’ll be glad that I’ve had the chance,
to be alive,
and all in all,
that I’ve lived
a pretty good life.
