I am on a swing.
I feel small,
Almost comforting
To see
How small I am
From here.
Where are my problems?
Where do they go
When I'm in the sky?
They're vanished.
There are no problems
Where I go
In the sky.


The author's comments:
This poem is about looking up at the sky while you're on a swing and realizing that it doesn't matter that some girls are making fun of my clothes. I was inspired to write this poem after a bad day at school, and I went on the swing, and everything dissapeared. I felt small, unimportant, and it really helped.

i think this is just a matter of how you look at things, pessimisim or optimism, and you can see it as like oh no the world is too big for me, or as: the world is so big so why do i even care? :)
