Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
Life is about giving it your all even when you have nothing.


Pretty balloon up in the sky
float away as fast as you can.
The world is your field
of wonder and life
to seek the secrets that hide in plain sight.

You float higher and higher;
the world grows smaller and smaller
You see the star that gets closer and closer
Such an overwhelming joy.

And then you burst
and you fall away.
No one knows because they are unable to see.
The pieces touch the Earth's corners
to wither and eventually turned to dust.

But you were free
if only for a moment
to breathe and see and feel an everlasting light.
You may be gone from here
but you are still floating.

Pretty balloon up in the sky
float away as fast as you can.
The world is your field
of wonder and life
to seek the secrets that hide in plain sight.

I came up with this when I was stuck in the hospital and there was an air ballon engraved into the cieling which gave me this inspiration.
