Beautiful day it was.
It came along with all the souls I knew.
The sun was up,
bright and glittering like gold.
The sky was clear as an empty sheet.
Birds were showing
their independence and freedom in the air. Swinging from the sky down to the earth.
I sat outside,
drawing the new world with my living eyes. Chewing and inhaling the air
that came along with the day.
I hugged myself,
and thanked the Lord that made me,
and chased me to this day alive.
