Favorite Quote:
“Who are you? Answer; you are who you are in this given moment. Label-less. Limitless. Remember that from this day forward.”
― Connor Franta, A Work in Progress

The boy with the jacket

the color of the dark forest green

is able to view the Earth

and see things unseen 


The flowers would follow 

whatever path he would go 

till they grew thorns 

something he did not know


They tore into his flesh

and punctured his heavy heart

but he continued to stride

while hopelessly falling apart


Off he persevered 

to see the good in this world 

little did he know he would

befriend a small brown eyed girl


Together they sprinted 

to the crisp mountain top

with subtle smiles and

no flowers to make them stop
