   Dear Mom,



I found those

brown tattered boots.

I found my old

blue stitched denim jacket.

I found my

blue mirrored shades.



I'm going skydiving

off the edge of the earth.

After that I'll be

bungee jumping from a black cloud.

When nightfall hits I'll be

rock climbing at Mt. Olympus.



So please

leave dinner

on the table.



I'll be home late.

Oh, I love this! I can easily relate, being the adventure seeker dreamer I am. I can actually see myself flying high, but hoping mom will be there when I land. This made me cry in a good way. Great job!
