Beautiful Things

October 18, 2018

Things for when you are wondering why you choose to live: Deep eyes, sweet smiles. Shades of yellows and blues. Summer nights, winter storms. Steamy hot chocolate, frozen iced coffee. Slightly melted ice cream, creamy peanut butter. Color ranging from pastels to the depths of black. Cold hearts, heated by unconventional love and hopeless romance. Loving families and friends. Night drives on empty roads. Unplanned memories and swift decisions. Steamy showers and sweet smelling lotions. Mittens and kittens. Messy notebooks with writing indentions. Cozy hoodies worn in cozy homes.

This was originally a concrete poem but basically it turned into a list of the reasons why life is worth living. These are some of the things that make life worth living.
