The Music of Thirteen

April 9, 2010
I’m finally thirteen,
Finally a teenager.
I’m finally at a Backstreet Boys concert.
This is unreal.
I must admit I didn’t have hope.
How could a band stay together for so long?
Well, they didn’t.
But, thank God for reunions!
Five years of waiting
Makes the day, oh so sweet
Even in the scorching heat.
The sun threatens to melt
The cement all around,
The plastic chairs
That I won’t sit in anyway.
Seven o’ clock.
Tst, tst, tst, tst
Ba-boom, ba-boom
Bwow, bwow, bwow wow
Bwow, wow wow wow
“Ha ha ha”
My heart speeds up.
I pinch my arm.
The picture and sound do not fade.
I stay standing.
Take the stage.
My ears fill with the music,
The lyrics,
The love that was my childhood.
This is so much better than dreaming.
Five years of waiting
To hear those five voices
Sing the harmony
To the melody of my heart.
