Poets have been blamed so often,
put on trial for
not writing happy poems
because we try so hard to find
the beauty in the pain
the romance in the insane
that we forget to talk about things
Did you know I was eight
when I saw a movie for the first time?
The smell of the popcorn
buttery and childhood-like
is still fresh
in my memories.
In fact, I remember the name of the movie
And the tune to its theme song
that I danced to, for weeks.
Swimming makes me happy.
To me, oceans feel like home
and mountains like a much-wanted vacation
and as a kid, I lived in a country that had both.
The first time I had a crush
As a thirteen-year-old,
it was magical.
The girl looked like a princess
right out of my favorite Disney movie.
I loved Disney movies.
I have a bucket list of things to do,
and a bigger list of things that make me smile.
