Favorite Quote:
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” –Henry David Thoreau

We want to look up
up higher than we’ve ever been
or seen before
past the sky
the stars and the moon
beyond the shining rose twilight
a place unknown
where there is no shame
we don’t have to worry
about our parents or our
the world will seem to stop
just for a second,
a moment of held breath
for us
to explore the light air
to be alone with our thoughts
and tears, and failures
to open our eyes, and see
a new life, where there is no past
a blank tape
and maybe, an outstretched hand
to grab onto, and squeeze-
and be pulled up, through the impossible
taking a minute for ourselves
knowing, this time
we won’t let go
