Everything is so bright

It's such a gorgeous sight

Everday that the sun shines

It shines brighter than the last

The meaning of the word beauty it flawlessly defines

For my life is no longer confined

Never again do i have to walk in a straight line

Because i am free

If i wanted

I could set out from sea to sea

Ocean to ocean

There is no longer a need for those familiar, static motions

I feel like a dog unleashed from its harness

A fish escaping from that dreaded hook

As if i am invincible, ageless

But really, 17 years of my life is all it took

To give me complete and utter freedom

And my heart a continuous, happy rhythm
