"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." -Ferris Bueller


My mom always told me to wear tennis shoes while I ride my bike,

so my toes don't get caught in the pedals.

I have this blanket on my bed from my grandma,

and the first night I slept with it I cried.

It's soft and hand-knit and safe.

But sometimes I get cold.

 

And every night before I go to sleep,

I read a book,

And I end up turning pages all night.

But sometimes my favorite character dies.

Sometimes, I get paper cuts.

 

And I wake up tired in the morning.

 

My mom always told me to wear tennis shoes while I ride my bike,

so my toes don't get caught in the pedals.

But sometimes I ride barefoot.

Live your life how you want to. Sometimes we take risks, and we must suffer the consequences, but more often than not, the risks are worth it.
