Today I am thinking about birds
Envied as their
Little wings carry them beyond the
Every second of my life feels important
How can I make them all last
Outshining the past and leaving me scarred
With their beautiful impact.
They say that happiness is best achieved
One day at a time
Be fulfilled, they say. Happiness is more than just little fun moments
Running towards an ambiguous goal; I am terrified that I will not reach that potential.
Everyone, everything, I love too many.
Across oceans, some birds fly
Together, inseparable communities braving the unknown.
Hope is to the
East, fly into the rising sun.
I love as much as I live.
To my bones. It
Heralds me towards its dying beauty
Every leaf and spec of sand is something other worldly that lives quietly amongst us.
Phones call to my friends instead of trees.
Resonating through conversation, they break up the frequency of our interaction.
Emerald happiness...How are my peers complacent in their
Excellence is more than grades,
Never mind society screaming for your academic perfection
Certainly, learn, but learn to grow. Don’t forget to
Experience your life.
Out of the past and into the
Future. I want to feel present. I want
My life to inhale happiness from my lungs to my soul
Opalescent shades of joyous shadows with
Undertones of rainbow colored emotions
Nurturing the feathers beneath my wings.
Take the jump, some people say, into the unknown.
As long as I stay here, how will I truly
Invigorate my motivation?
Now do you
See what matters to me?
