"Talent is actually the self-discovery and acknowledgment that you possess the interest and motivation needed to become exceptional in a specific area."


Sitting by the fire,
Late night,
Sky is clear, stars are bright,
Sitting on his deck,
Laying on his swing,
Swinging,
Back,
And forth,
The motion clears your mind,
Relieves your worries,
Heals your pains,

Sitting by the fire,
Swinging,
Watching the flames,
Dancing in the heat,
While were melting away,
To the night sound,
Writing the song
Our heart plays,
Every night,
Before we,
Drift off to sleep,

Sitting by the fire,
Swinging,
Watching,
Engulfed into darkness,
But,
Blasted with light,
Behind us swinging,
The dark, the past,
The unforgettable,
The unforgivable,
Before us,
Bright, our future,
The hope,
The soon to come,
The never ending,

Sitting by the fire,
Next to him,
For the last time,
Not knowing,
But always wishing this moment would never end,
Swinging gently,
Watching the flames dance,
Observing our future,
Seeing a shadow,
The shadow of death,

Sitting by the fire,
Late at night,
Sky is clear, stars are bright,
Special moments you never forget,
Missing those night at the fireside.

A poem I wrote in march of 2006, in 7th grade, again, about my dad. Dug this up from the basement along with a couple other old poems wrote back then.
