Looking Behind, Down then Forward

When I look Behind,

I miss being smaller.

I miss being simpler.

I miss being able to wear everything.

I miss feeling good about myself.

I miss not being criticised for being too dependant.

I miss feeling safe.

I miss not worrying.

I miss not caring if the puppy was dirty or smelly.

After, I look Down,

and am reminded again and again

to treasure what I have now;

before it is taken away too.

Then I raise my head and look Forward,

awaiting and anticipating for the

fiercer joys ahead.

About everburningcinders

So so...where to start? Well, for starters, I can say that I'm one of those kinds of people that don't care about their hair, or desperately need another pair of shoes. In fact, if you see me, you wouldn't notice me at all. I'm just the shadow, sticking to the walls, head buried in a book or eyes glazed over in a daydream. I want to be listened to and I want to be appreciated. My moral in life: Life is life. Believe in it and suck it up. I look forward to meetin' ya all!
