"Life isn't about finding yourself. It's about creating yourself."


There's a place

a million miles away

with crystal skies

sun sparkling bright

clear cascading floods of water

maybe there's a place

more perfect than this

we hold hands and laugh

our hearts growing warmer

we lay and gaze up at the stars

heavy eyes drifting off to sleep

my dreams, they soar

anthem of my silent peace

decisions made

time well spent

memories crackle above the fire

sparks of light that soon will die

how could this end

a fantasy

how could we come so far

just to

fall apart we're scarred

but let's remember

this perfect place

an outcropping over empty space

treetops and craggy mountain peaks

like the broken ends of our last dreams

can't help but make us wonder

if something can live forever

will it burst apart

there's something to discover

a new beginning

a different place

things come back to life

one little ember

and we can all remember

all these years

won't end in crying

all these tears

flood right on by

but something's steadfast

doesn't wash away

bonds through time

will never fade

one framed picture

a moment remains

there's a memory it seems

a million miles away

crystal skies

sun sparkling bright

clear cascading floods of water

some things, i've learned

grow far too strong

to ever fall apart.


The author's comments:
This was a poem I wrote while sitting on a rock at a river property. It was a very emotional day because I have a group of friends who have for ten years been going on adventures every month in the wilderness and that day I wrote this was our graduation as we move into high school. This piece talks about our bond and this special property we have visited every year, and how all of it is coming to a close.

Write. It doesn't matter if you're overjoyed, furious, miserable, or what. Write to keep those emotions in check while managing to grow stronger.

This is absolutely amazing! I'm not usually a poetry fan, but I could feel the emotion behind the words. You did a fantastic job writing this. I like how you repeated the beginning few lines as you were finishing the poem. It really makes that part stand out and allow people to see how important it is to the poem. Great job :)
