My Life Seen Through My Eyes
I am from waiting for a call, waiting for a text
I am from acting like “everything is fine”
when deep down it kills me
I am from loving you
even though I know that the feelings aren't mutual.
I am from lies, tears, and hope
I waited but never again?
I am from hot bubbly baths in the kitchen;
from my tia doing my hair different each day.
I am from Catholics
from “Peace be with you”
I am from my grandfather
whom when I was little
I would cry begging him not to leave!
I am from loving my grandfather
a person who lives two separate lives
hundreds of miles away from each other
I am from knowing he breaks a commandment each day
so much for being a “religious” man!
I am from a loving and caring set of parents
who support me in everything I plan to do in life.
I am from my two best-friends
the sisters -I never had-
the shoulders I cry on
the ones who stand by me no matter what.
I am from a forest
where the white tail deer
roam wild and free
but who is scared of me!
I am from is the deer in my range?
It may be a little to far
should I just take a shot?
What to do?
I am from scorching summer days,
laying out by the refreshing pool
trying to get that perfect sun kissed tan.
I am from Hawaii's beautiful sunsets;
with warm sand in between my finger-like toes
I am from hearing the waves crash onto the land
and it is a sight to see!
I am from the tropical fish that look so bizarre
the hot sun beating on my back
I am from wondering what it is like to live in the ocean?
I am from blood, sweat, and tears
countless hours in the gym,
just to have that sweet taste of victory
and to declare myself a champion!
I am from conscious thoughts
am I good enough?
should I use this move or maybe this one
when i'm not working to be better
I know that there is someone somewhere else who is!
I am from an ice cold gatorade
a drink that replenishes my body and muscles,
after an extremely difficult work out or after an intense game.
I am from a tied championship game;
with seat dripping down the side of my face
10 seconds left
everything is on the line, its all or -nothing-
I am from priceless memories
from people who I'll never forget
and mights that I'll always remember.
I am from the belief in myself
that I'll be someone someday
not another girl who did nothing with “her” life!
I am from my hero
the person I can turn to for anything
who won't tell a soul,
a special bond who I will have with no one else
I am from my hero
who I will love and cherish forever!
