Overrun By Books

I cry every time I read
I want those moments
The moments that give someone meaning
When I read those words and picture their lives
All I want is to be them
Or some version of them
Not the ones that have the perfect lives
Or the ones with the happy endings
But the ones who keep going no matter what the world throws at them
The ones who go on adventures
The ones who have a friend who they can talk about anything with
The ones who learn how to love
The ones who would do anything to be with the one they adore
The ones who enjoy their lives despite hardships
The ones who have a story to tell
Not always a good one
But one that will have an impact on at least one person

I'm not asking for a different life
All I want is to have those moments
And feel some of those feelings
And live a life that means something
I know I won't get my perfect fantasy

Trees Awakening

I was walking the edge of the forest by my house
When I heard a slight squeal I considered a mouse

I turned to my left to see an emerging face
Coming out of the tree, 4 feet up the base

It looks at me with a sense of curiosity
Like I was the strange one and was the monstrosity

“I’ve spent so many years under a curse by a witch.
She kept us trees silent.” He says with a twitch

“Well, welcome back,” I reply disbelieving
“I think it's time for me to be leaving.”

“Don’t leave me,” He shouts as I walk quickly home
“I need your help to free my legs so I can roam.”

I must be sick and must be hallucinating
For surly that tree was not just communicating

I sit in the living room and as if it was mocking
The news reporter on tv said that trees were talking

Different

I guess you could say i’m different

Driven by my dreams
Inspired by nature and animals
Fueled by the energy around
Fluent in crazy and weird
Excited about the unknown
Ready to sing in the rain
Eager to learn about my interests
Not going to let anything stop me
Tired but still moving forward

But everyone is different in their own way

Old Photos

My heart aches
as I look at these pictures
the memories
bring tears to my eyes

It truly sucks
how they just took it all away
they didn't care about
what we wanted

Everything is gone
just gone
and we can never
get it back

The Other World

There once was a girl named Alassa
who died protecting her love
this story would be tragic
if not for the magic
that was left for her from above

Soon after her death she realized
the world she knew had disappeared
but she was greeted by faces
and many embraces
from people who just suddenly appeared

She was told that this was the afterlife
a place where time stood still
everyone came here
no matter the year
and did whatever they wanted at will

Alassa realized that her hands were glowing
and asked what that was about
“Once the one you adore
comes here through the door
the glow will lead you to him and fade out”  

So she waited for the love of her life
and spent her time traveling
it was very captivating
and quite fascinating
As this world secrets were unraveling

First Day Of School...At Home

It's a first for me. 
Yet it is not really a first.

I start my first day of eleventh grade...at home.
After spending every school year in the same small school, it is extremely odd for me to not go back there. Homeschooling is a lot different. Yet it feels like I am still in the middle of summer. 

I miss my school. I miss my friends and teachers. I miss all of it. But everything has to change at some point. 

I feel nervous despite being in my own home. My mom set up all of my assignments for this week. She has to work so I am basically teaching myself. I have to be responsible and manage my time wisely. I guess this is good practice for the future but it is still overwhelming.

Thoughts

Looking up in the night
I see a sky full of light

The darkness illuminated
By stars and everything related

It's like a beautiful canvas
Yet no one understands this

If only time would freeze
Then everything would ease

Almost like it was meant to be
Here for you and me
