I wrote a song.
I called an old friend.
I ate an apple.
I drove barefoot.
I sang loudly in the car.
I let my hand
Catch the air.
I rolled down a hill.
I caught a ladybug.
I named it Frederick.
I bought a homeless person food.
I walked with him to the park.
I taught him how to play guitar.
I realized life doesn't have to be complicated.

The author's comments:
My life has been getting really stressful lately, with being at college and all. It really makes me miss the simplicity of life, and how the little things about life can sometimes be the most precious.
