"'I don't need easy; I just need possible.'"


Yesterday the world was different

One that was humdrum

One that was commonplace

But today, when I awoke, it was new

It was immersed

Enveloped into a world of white

A world that I saw just last year

But this year I see it in new eyes

Eyes that I looked into years ago

These eyes saw more innocent times

Times of sledding and snowball fights


Times of rosy cheeks and cold noses

This year, I want to savor my brand new world

One more time before the no-nonsense adulthood years

Before I have too many responsibilities

Too many priorities

To think of ‘such trivial things’

So, this winter, away the sensible thoughts go

Gone is my maturity, the knowledge of my age

Now, I will see my world with brand new eyes.


The author's comments:
Teenage years are a peculiar time: We are stuck in between childhood and adulthood, and are expected to not do childish things, but we're limited in the adult things we do. Enjoying the snow is something associated with little children, and this winter, I desire to savor the season with the enthusiasm and joy that children do.
