"It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way." -Ernest Hemingway

I am only a little boy

Sitting by the treetop

Waiting for the birds to chirp

In the early sunlight
Early morning always delights me
and also frights me

the sun beats down on a my black bedded shirt
but the cool autumn almost makes me fall off

I can already see the moon
so high up in the star
i cup my hands around it so I could be the star

Mother yells to me from the kitchen window
so I dash away, dash away, away from the summers day brawl

Love the autumn breeze. This is my way of expressing it.

"and the salt in my wounds isn't burning anymore than it used to. It's not that I don't feel the pain. It's just I'm not afraid of hurting anymore. And the blood in these veins isn't pumping any less than it ever has and that's the hope I have, the only thing I know that's keeping me alive." - Paramore (Last Hope)

That is beautiful. It almost felt like I was actually there when I read this. The imagery and word choice is spectacular! Keep it up
