The sun has disappeared under the horizon Yet the the sky is still lit. Clouds illuminate orange and pink, While lighter blues sweep behind as a backdrop. At this moment in time I feel so small, That nothing could ever bad happen, That every life is equal. The clouds colors begin to fade, Like all good, it sadly comes to an end. My heart feels heavier and my clear eyes gaze at what is left. Why does it have to end? Why must good have a limit? While we can’t stop the sun from leaving, We can work towards better ways. We humans have accomplished many difficult things, But we can’t seem to achieve kindness, One of the most important things.
If it wasn’t a dark and stormy night And it wasn’t a long long time ago, Then what was it? Well I will tell you, It was a story told down by family to family, Remembered by heart before paper. It was stuck in young minds Inspiring you to take your first stride. It was your night and day, While traveling to the corners of space. It was your sweet smelling moments, As well as the dark scary seconds. This story writes every move, It is your story, you write, You are the author of your life
Rolling waves crash on the beach Creating wind that messes with my hair My heart beats the rhythm of my step. Salty water obeys the moon and rises Then falls. Tides always keeps me wandering. Then wondering as stars cover the sky. Sand seeping around my feet Silently telling me to stay. But I can’t, I step further and further The waves spraying, The wind blowing, My heart pounding.
They all wished for sun shine For clear bluebird skies. Each one complaining that their life is the worst. But from what I learned you make you life suck When all you do is complain and believe in negativity. I chose to dance in the rain and let it soak me to the bone, I chose to let myself smile and feel the love around me. So instead of waiting for the sun, dance in the rain, Let it fall onto your cheeks, lips and hair. Allow it to refresh you for the life ahead. Then as they all wait for sunshine, Accept the rain and dance with a smile, Until you are wet enough to drip a river.
In a meadow Where the wind can run free through my hair, Where the air is fresher and sweeter than after a storm, Where my dress flows carefully through tall pale grass. In a meadow Where I am free to sprint forever and my legs never tire, Where my voice empowers the wind to blow harder, Where I love everything around me, All it is, is just me, my dress, the field and the sky. In a meadow With tall wild grass, I live forever in this endless bliss.
You said to go follow my dreams But when my dreams consist of you, My desires slip through my fingers And my gaze is flipped to you. You catch my eye And make my breath feel like my last, You make my heart beat right out of my chest, Like the beat was made for you. You distract me from the most capturing pictures Making my eyes leave the sunset forever. When you speak, I get lost, As if I am wandering in the most beautiful forest ever. They all told me to wait for no one But I still could not help but wait for you, You capture me and make me dread the moments without you. So as your day ticks on Just know that I am thinking of You And I hope your mind is on Me.
I love flying down the mountain, My board surfing over the snow, The way my heart goes up when I hit a jump, The way each turn brings me farther. I love it all. I love being with my friends Laughing with each other as we ride up the lift, Our boards and skis knocking into each other. The cold almost too hard to bear, But we all love it anyway. I love Every chance I get to go snowboarding, To see the world through my orange-tinged goggles, And the white snow coming down in front of the green chair lift. I love this sport with all my heart. I am a snowboarder.
Never did I think the sky could hold so many possibilities All of the stars give me hope That tomorrow will be better. Like a bird I wish to fly My wings stretching out before the moon My heart pounding to beat of freedom. Like long gone wishes mine came true, Wind streaking my lips And for moments I was apart of the gust, I was breathing in the earth. Now I know that it was no wish That made me fly, I was already apart of the wind, My eyes just couldn’t find The sky of possibilities.
