"When you make peace with yourself, you make peace with the world."

I am afraid that I might one day soon lose my awe at the world.
I will become my parents and never realize
the way the sleep sun illuminates your hair.
The magical midnight hour might not have the same effect on me in time.
When I look at the mighty oak,
I won’t admire the way he knows to stretch upwards
towards something bigger.
I may forget the way I once wondered endlessly about the infinite universe
just beyond these burning stars.
But one thing I know for sure,
is that I will never lose my awe for the
fascinating creature that is

So many adults seem to lose their passion for life with each passing year. I hope to never lose my awe at the world around me.
